The Marriage of Figaro

The Marriage of Figaro

Ford & Etal Estates is hosting two open-air opera performances this summer in the spectacular setting of Ford Castle courtyard. Tonight Opera Brava, Britain’s leading outdoor touring opera company, will present the Marriage of Figaro, probably the most perfect and popular opera.


In this joyful farce we witness the foibles and intrigues used to reveal the indiscretions of a philandering nobleman.  Some of Mozart’s most sublime music features in this bittersweet yet uplifting comedy. Expect world class singing from Britain’s outstanding touring opera company.

Opera Brava’s new production has an international cast, the production is set in the 18th century and sung in English.

Bring rugs, and your own chairs for comfort. We will be selling delicious food, and there will be a bar, but if you prefer you can bring your own picnic. Gates open at 5.30pm so you can relax and enjoy this incredible setting and feel the atmosphere build in the run up to this very special open-air performance which begins at 7:30pm.

General admission: £30 plus booking fee
Child (15 and under): £10 plus booking fee

Tickets can be purchased online at: eventbrite

We suggest that you check the weather forecast on the day so that you can dress appropriately, please remember to bring torches as it will be dark when you leave and the car park will be unlit. NB: No umbrellas are allowed inside the courtyard.

Car parking will be available in a nearby field and it is a short walk from here to the castle. There will be disabled parking spaces on a hard surface.
