Beaumarchaisís play The Marriage of Figaro, premiered in 1778, has been called Ďthe play that started the French Revolutioní. It was still banned in Vienna when Mozartís opera was premiered there eight years later, and its unflinching examination of the abuse of power and the hypocrisy of the rich and powerful has lost none of its bite or humour with the passing of a mere 235 years.

Dominic Wheeler conducts his first production as Head of Opera, in collaboration with the Schoolís Resident Producer, Martin Lloyd-Evans. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

The performance on 28 February will be preceded by Opera in the Foyer: a selection of opera scenes performed by senior Guildhall School singers at 6.15pm.
