    The Barber of Seville - Opening Night

    By Gioachino Rossini | Sung in Italian with English Supertitles

    Disguises and false identities abound as men — young and old — vie for the hand of the beautiful Rosina in one of the funniest and most frenetic operas ever composed! Rossini’s delightful 19th-century romp centers on “Figaro, Figaro, Figaro,” a scheming barber and jack-of-all-trades who plots with Count Almaviva to release Bartolo’s ward from her gilded cage. From the first notes of one of the world’s most famous overtures to the final curtain, your heart will be racing!
