About this show

17th century Spain is the setting for Rossini's comic masterpiece and prequel to The Marriage of Figaro. Desperate to be loved for who he is, not what he has, the affluent Count Almaviva dons a series of disguises so that he may woo the beautiful Rosina incognito. Of course, much drama ensues… Will the Count's ruse work, or will he be thwarted by others including the conniving Dr. Bartolo? Perhaps the shining example of opera buffa, The Barber of Seville endures today as one of the most beloved works in the operatic repertory.
