The Attempted Rape of Susanna
Adapted by Rosa Campagnaro & Sally Whitwell
Inspired by Mozart and Da Ponte's The Marriage of Figaro
This is a new thought-provoking adaption of The Marriage of Figaro, a contemporary reimagining set in a nondescript Australian city with a family of cashed-up bogans and the hired help. The action for this opera buffa begins as farcical but descends into tragedy. Think Mozart meets Kath and Kim meets Promising Young Woman...
