  • Overview
    It is considered an early indication of the French Revolution in its denouncement of the privileges of the nobility. In it, Beaumarchais uses the main characters from 'The Barber of Seville': the barber Figaro, Count Almaviva, and Rosine, who in this play is now the Countess. Bartholo, the other principal character of The Barber of Seville, has a secondary role. The play was turned into an opera by Mozart, also called The Marriage of Figaro.
