Concert Information

Figaro is one of the best-known names in opera today, just as James Conlon is one of opera’s finest conductors. Performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro reaches lofty heights of tunefulness in the intimate setting of the Martin Theatre, the 850-seat acoustic gem of the same size as Mozartean halls. John Relyea reprises the title role he stepped into at Ravinia in 2010, with Lisette Oropesa also returning as Susanna and Soile Isokoski and Stéphane Degout portraying the Countess and Count Almaviva.
