The Count believes the Countess is hiding a lover in her closet. He is astonished to find Susanna instead. So is the Countess, because the pageboy Cherubino had been in there; unbeknownst to her, he has jumped out the window. Figaro announces that his wedding to Susanna is about to begin. The Count questions him. Antonio the gardener complains that someone has jumped on his flowers. Figaro claims to the skeptical Count and Antonio that it was he. Marcellina, Bartolo, and Basilio demand that Figaro marry Marcellina to repay his debt to her. The Count agrees to judge the case.
