Nozze di Figaro 1886Carl Rosa Opera Company

Read more about the opera Marriage of Figaro

Figaro was by no means the ultra-popular work of today's operatic scene, even if it was loved and admired by connoisseurs. Carl Rosa did give it the occasional outing however.

Here, Georgina Burns played the Countess - in 1891 she would take on Cherubino, a strange reversal of the career progression that is more common today.
