A cut, a shave, a scheme, a prank… all in a day’s work!
“Figaro! Figaro! Fiiigarooo!” Indeed, demand is at an all-time high for the sharp-scissored and equally sharp-witted barber of Seville. Chief among the clamoring masses is Count Almaviva, who begs his friend to help him woo the beautiful young Rosina. The catch? A bumbling, older doctor has claimed her first! Pulling from a bottomless bag of tricks and disguises, this scheming duo stops at nothing–breaking and entering, shaving distractions, even good old-fashioned bribery–to turn the tables in the name of true love.
The Barber of Seville
(Il barbiere di Siviglia)
Music by Gioachino Rossini / Libretto by Cesare Sterbini
