Marriage of Figaro
the Count (a scheming middle-aged baritone)
is seeking the favors of the Countess' maid
and confidante, the young Susanna,
who is about to wed her fiancé, Figaro, the Count's valet.
When the Count detects the interest of the adolescent page,

he tries to get rid of Cherubino
by giving him an officer's commission
in his own regiment.
Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess conspire
to embarrass the Count and expose his scheming.
