Figaro, Susanna and the Countess plot to shame the Count and save Cherubino from being sent to join the army. But their plans don't run smoothly, particularly when the elderly Marcellina tries to force Figaro to marry her. An astonishing revelation prevents this happening, but will the Count still find a way to thwart the wedding and can the Countess win back her husband?
