Book Overview

The sparkling plays about the scoundrelly valet Figaro, used as the basis of operas by Mozart and Roissini

A highly engaging comedy of intrigue, The Barber of Seville portrays the resourceful Figaro foiling a jealous old man's attempts to keep his beautiful ward from her lover. And 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.
