The Barber of Seville
Music by Gioachino Rossini, with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini • October 14, 17, 20 & 22, 2023
Close shaves and cutting comedy.
With scissors as sharp as his wits, the cunning barber Figaro is the go-to neighborhood trickster capable of solving any problem. When Count Almaviva finds himself smitten with the charming and clever Rosina, Almaviva knows exactly who to call to help him out. Through disguises and distractions, schemes and subterfuge, Figaro and Almaviva team up to outwit the dastardly Dr. Bartolo who would have Rosina—and her large fortune—for his own.
From its famous opening overture to its topsy-turvy conclusion, you’ll be cheering for “Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!” to win the day.
