The Marriage of Figaro is back with Stacey Alleaume taking stage

Stacey Alleaume Mirrage Figaro

Since joining the program in 2016, Melbourne-born opera singer Stacey Alleaume has kicked goal-after-goal.

From making us laugh out loud in her 2018 role in The Turk in Italy to making us cry as Violetta Valery in La Traviata of the same year, she’s a star on the rise and one the company’s thankful for in the 2019 season where Stacey will take on the role of Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro.

Stacey will share the role with fellow soprano, Julie Lea Goodwin who crushed her role as Wendy in the Australian focused production of the famed artist Brett Whiteley in Whiteley.

Alongside Paolo Bordogna – who Stacey has worked very closely with previously in The Turk in Italy – who’ll bring his charming Italian flavoured baritone skills to the stage as Figaro

Set in the 1600s – a good century before Mozart actually wrote the opera – it’s a spectacular take on the highs and lows of a tale that makes a hero of the underclass, highlights the class divisions of the time and foreshadows the French Revolution that was brewing on the near horizon.
