Opera Idaho goes to the altar with Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro,” one of the liveliest and funniest operas in the canon.

This sequel to “The Barber of Seville” finds our romantic leads settled into marriage — though none too happily.

Rosina, now the Countess (soprano Diana McVey), is trying to recapture the magic; the Count, now a baritone (Jason Detwiler), plays the field, while Dr. Bartolo (Zachary James) wants revenge against Figaro (Austin Kness) for thwarting his plans to marry Rosina years before.

But, again, it’s the clever Figaro to the rescue, except now, he must find his own happy ending with the lovely Susanna (Susannah Biller).
