Performances at 2pm and 6pm of approximately one hour, a pocket opera is a fun way to experience opera! Featuring local artists, this series showcases the best that Canberra has t offer.

Il Nozze di Figaro, the Marriage of Figaro, is set over just one day (as indicated by its subtitle ‘A Day of Follies’) – Figaro’s wedding day. Figaro opens and bride-to-be Susanna, fitting out the new room that their master the Count has given them. Susanna reveals that the only reason the Count has made such a generous gift is to keep her nearby – he plans to seduce her, re-instating the lately abolished ‘feudal right’ which allowed a lord to have his way with a servant girl on her wedding night. Pocket Operas are condensed versions of your favourite opera which will run for approximately one hour in performance.

With performances at 2pm and 6pm, come along and enjoy National Opera's showcase of local Canberrans.
