Create a site to site VPN between your local network and azure. You can then join the VMs to your domain and even place a VM DC on azure for times with the VPN is down or where greater performance is desired.

So can we do this with any number of firewalls?

Azure doesn't change the rules of basic networking. You'll have to have the appropriate firewall exceptions.
