Pittsburgh Opera presents Mozart’s beloved madcap comedy “The Marriage of Figaro” Nov. 4-12 at the Benedum Center.

Figaro is in love with the Countess’s servant Susanna, who he plans to wed that very day. However, their employer Count Almaviva has his eye on Susanna. In fact, the Count intends to invoke the hated feudal practice of droit de seigneur — the infamous right of the lord to sleep with a commoner’s bride on her wedding night. Figaro, Susanna and the Countess are understandably outraged at this possibility, and are determined not only to prevent it, but to teach the Count a lesson while they’re at it.

Tickets start at $12.
