The Barber of Seville
Chase away the February blues with The Barber of Seville, a feast of frivolous fun. Enjoy Figaro's mischievous escapades as he assists Count Almaviva in prising the beautiful Rosina away from her lecherous guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Rossini's comic masterpiece fizzes with memorable melodies in an entertaining production that proves that the road to true love is paved with theft, lies, bribery, brawling—and wicked comedy.
