Bangkok Community Theatre will present The Essential Marriage of Figaro as a dinner theatre at the British Club (Silom 18, Bangkok) on 6, 7, 13, 14 March 2020. Mozart’s comic opera will be performed as a studio production with a cast of six. The opera will be sung in English. Tickets are THB 1,200 per person and include a three-course buffet dinner. A cash bar will be available.
The Essential Marriage of Figaro tells the core plot of Mozart’s wonderful opera The Marriage of Figaro, and uses Mozart’s original, beautiful and tuneful score.
The Marriage of Figaro continues the plot of The Barber of Seville, and recounts a single “day of madness” in the palace of Count Almaviva near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess. The Count Almaviva is a bullying, skirt-chasing baritone. Having gratefully given Figaro a job as head of his servant-staff, he is now persistently trying to exercise his droit du seigneur – his right to bed a servant girl on her wedding night – with Figaro’s bride-to-be, Susanna, who is the Countess’s maid. He keeps finding excuses to delay the civil part of the wedding of his two servants, which is arranged for this very day.
Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess conspire to embarrass the Count and expose his scheming. Through Figaro’s and Susanna’s clever manipulations, the Count’s love for his Countess is finally restored. All is forgiven.
On stage you will find a multinational cast from Canada, UK, Japan and Thailand: Nicholas Irvine, Derek Wai-Man Chan, Joseph Roberts, Hanae Matsumura, Anna Poco and Tae Miyata. Director is Ian Robinson; producer Don Harrelson; musical director Tony Newman; and assistant musical director, Simon Green.
