The Marriage of Figaro – 'Susanna, or via, sortite'

Extracts | Mozart

The Count (Simon Keenlyside) has heard a noise from the closet. The Countess (Julia Kleiter) tells him it is only Susanna (Joélle Harvey), trying on her wedding dress. At this moment, Susanna re-enters unobserved, quickly realizes what's going on, and hides behind a couch. The Count shouts for her to identify herself by her voice, but the Countess orders her to be silent. Conducted by John Eliot Gardiner and directed by David McVicar.
