Seville. Spain. The end of the 18th century. Castle of Count Almaviva. The count, who has recently married Rosina, the countess, who satyr seeks the favor of the young Susanna, Figaro’s betrothed, one of the nobleman’s many servants.

The count, with dark and veiled intentions, gives Figaro the best room in the palace. However, the servant does not know that his marriage chamber, which is very beautiful and spacious, is conveniently located next to the main room of the palace where the earl and countess sleep.

While Figaro thanks his lord for his good will, Susanna guesses the real reasons he is hiding for such a large favor: the count plans to restore the right of pernada, a feudal right that allows a lord to sleep with his subjects’ betrothed the night before the wedding — to fulfill his wishes for poor Susanna in the same room.

Meanwhile, another conspiracy is brewing in the palace: the housekeeper Marcelina goes to the needy Bartolo, who has a dislike for Figaro, to help her make the genial servant honor an old contract in which he promised to marry her.

Bartolo, motivated by revenge, will gladly accept this union with Marcelina. The betrothed, armed with cunning and humor, will have to outwit their detractors if they are to avoid the injustices that are plotted against them in court and quietly achieve their love.

The plot becomes complicated when Count Almaviva discovers that his page Cherubino shows great interest in the Countess and for this reason wants to get rid of him by sending him to war. Figaro, Susanna and the Countess agree to thwart the Count’s plans and expose his infidelity.

But meanwhile, Figaro has an argument with Bartolo and Marcellina, which ends with the discovery that Figaro is their son. At the end of the day, all the main characters meet in the palace, where misunderstandings arise, until finally the Count and Countess reconcile and Figaro and Susanna are able to marry.
