Abigail stars in one of the leading roles with Opéra de Baugé in France

Abigail plays the role of Susanna in 'Le Nozze di Figaro' on 29th and 31st July at 7pm, 2nd and 5th August at 6pm which is a major part of the Opéra de Baugé's diary for 2014.

 

"A nobleman on the cusp of wrenching social change. He would like to insist on respect and obedience from all his retainers. He would like to make free with their wives, daughters and fiancées. His father and grandfather would have done but can he? Will his wife and his underlings bring him to a more enlightened frame of mind? Mozart's trenchant views on the social order combined with his most delicious music."
