“After staging the same production of “The Marriage of Figaro” for a quarter-century, it was time for Houston Grand Opera to try a fresh take on Mozart’s masterpiece . . . An excellent cast, led by the particularly notable Countess played by Ailyn Pérez, and the buoyant conducting of Harry Bicket, ensure that the rendition is as musically accomplished as it is theatrically effective.”
