The Barber of Seville

The Barber of Seville

Music by G. Rossini

“The most beautiful comic opera ther is.”


This audience favorite takes the idea of hairdresser-as-confidant to comic extremes!

Before he was a married man, Figaro was the go-to guy for fixing just about any problem associated with love.

It seems that sooner or later everyone in town enlists the covert assistance of this intrepid barber, whose razor-sharp maneuverings prompt him to sing one of­—if not the—most famous arias of all time.

Will he be able to help Count Almaviva earn the love of his cherished Rosina?

In Italian with English supertitles.
