Follow the adventures of a household over one crazy day; Masters are lusting over their servants, servants are outwitting their masters — Figaro is the Downton Abbey of opera, but a whole lot more fun!

In a wealthy household in Seville, Figaro is marrying Susanna, but the Count wants to seduce her first. Marcellina wants Figaro and the Countess just wants her husband back. But Susanna is smarter than all of them. After a crazy day of disguise and duplicity, will she get her happily ever after?

Award-winning creative duo Michael Gow and Robert Kemp have created this brand new production, featuring stunning period costumes and a clever set. A talented chamber orchestra and chorus of Cairns children will accompany some of Opera Australia's finest singers performing Mozart’s beautiful music.

Sung in English, performed with chamber orchestra.

Performance usage

Munro Martin Parklands is Cairns’ newest premier community gathering place, complete with an outdoor performance space.  Due to the residential nature, the specific nature of the stage and the visibility the stage offers the audience, this venue is best suited to high end performing arts events.

Munro Martin Park is a space dedicated to curated events to provide culturally enriching experiences for the Cairns community. Due to its niche program, venue hire availability is limited and dependent on assessment by management to ensure performances are suitable for a curated space.

Embrace - public art sculpture

Woopen Creek based sculptor, Braham Stevens, designed the piece to withstand the harsh tropical conditions and maintain a 'timeless' character. Embrace is a nine-metre tall sculpture, made from laser-cut, heavy gauge steel and is part of a linking public artwork project which connects the Munro Martin Parklands with the James Cook University Campus. The sculpture represents the intricate relationships, cycles and connections between geology, ecology, man, time and place.
