Soak up free culture on your doorstep with this free live screening from the Royal Opera House stage to the BP Big Screen at Queen’s Drive Space, Exmouth Seafront.
Figaro and Susanna plan to get married – but their master Count Almaviva has designs on Susanna and is determined to stop the wedding taking place. Meanwhile the page Cherubino’s passion for the ladies jeopardizes his job, and Countess Almaviva wants to regain her husband’s love.
Figaro, Susanna and the Countess plot to shame the Count and save Cherubino from banishment. But their plans don’t run smoothly, particularly when the elderly Marcellina tries to force Figaro to marry her. An astonishing revelation prevents this happening, but will the Count still find a way to thwart the wedding? And can the Countess win back her husband’s affection?
