This opera buffa (comic opera) is a continuation on the plot of the Barber of Seville revisiting the characters several years down the line. It is an account of a single "day of madness" (la folle giornata) in the palace of the Count Almaviva near Seville, Spain. Rosina is now the Countess and Dr. Bartolo is looking for revenge against Figaro after thwarting his personal plans to marry Rosina. Count Almaviva has degenerated from his former romantic youth into a bullying, skirt-chasing baritone. Having gratefully given Figaro a job as head of his servant-staff, the Count now continually trys to obtain the favors of Figaro's bride-to-be, Susanna. He keeps creating excuses to delay the civil part of the wedding of his two servants, which is arranged for this very day. Figaro, Susanna, and the Countess conspire to embarrass the Count and expose his scheming. The Count’s response is an attempt to legally compel Figaro to marry a woman old enough to be his mother, who turns out at the last minute to actually be his mother. By the end, as a result of Figaro and Susanna's clever manipulations, the Count's love for Rosina is finally restored.
