Opera Book Club: The Marriage of Figaro
From Penguin Classics: “The Marriage of Figaro—condemned by Louis XVI for its daring satire of nobility and privilege—depicts a master and servant set in opposition by their desire for the same woman. With characteristic lightness of touch, Beaumarchais—a French courtier, secret agent, libertine, and adventurer—created an audacious farce of disguise and mistaken identity that balances wit, frivolity and seriousness in equal measure.”
