Figaro! Figaro! Fiiiii-garoh!

Opera’s most famous barber takes center stage as Seville’s matchmaker in the most hilarious of operatic follies. Will the young and handsome Count win the hand of beautiful Rosina? Or, will devious Dr. Bartolo trick her into marriage? Mistaken identities, deceptions and counter-deceptions abound in this amorous romp. Rossini’s score is a veritable highlight reel of beautiful music for each of our stars, chorus, and orchestra. Ah, bravo Figaro!
