The Barber of Seville
Show Times and Tickets
Rossini’s Opera THE BARBER OF SEVILLE (BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA)is considered to be the finest comic opera in existence! From start to finish it is marvelously crafted, brilliantly inventive, and uproariously funny. The libretto is based on THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO (LE MARRIAGE DE FIGARO) of Baumarchais and takes place in Seville in the 18th Century. Count Almaviva, a Spanish grandee, has arrived in Seville disguised as a poor student named Lindoro in order to woo Rosina, the ward of the pompous Dr. Bartolo, who plans to marry her himself. Almaviva enlists the help of Figaro, the barber, in winning Rosina’s affections. Together they trick Dr. Bartolo and the Count marries Rosina.
