Man, you just can’t trust a blue-blood. One minute they’re, like, friendly, you know, hanging out in Seville and all, “Hey, Figgy ol’ pal, could you help me win this girl, buddy o’ mine?” Before you know it, the fat lady sings, the curtain rings down on the Barber of Seville and it’s on to The Marriage of Figaro. Same count, same servant, only this time Mr. Noble has come over all forgetful of the solid Figaro did him in the first opera and is busy trying to screw Figaro’s fiancée right before Fig’s wedding. Lesson: You just can’t count on a count. See Count Backstabber get his comeuppance as the Fort Worth Opera stages Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro at 2 p.m. Sunday at Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St., with another show 7:30 p.m. June 1. Tickets for Sunday’s matinee range from $18 to $150. Find them and more information at fwopera.org/performances/the-marriage-of-figaro/.
