The remainder of the cast includes Mireille Asselin as Susanna, Peggy Kriha Dye as Countess Almaviva, Mireille Lebel as Cherubino, Laura Pudwell as Marcellina, Gustav Andreassen as Bartolo), Christopher Enns as Basilio/Don Curzio,  and Grace Lee as Barbarina.

Opera Atelier’s production of The Marriage of Figaro will be sung in the famous English translation by American playwright Jeremy Sams.
