Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!

Opera’s famous barber is back in Rossini’s madcap comedy. Be enchanted as this scheming barber helps playboy Count Almaviva win the hand of the vivacious young Rosina, who is kept a virtual prisoner in the home of her crotchety guardian, Dr. Bartolo.

Rossini’s score is punctuated with brilliant ensembles and some of opera’s most familiar arias, including Figaro’s ode to his own fame while the stage is set for laugh-out-loud comedy.

Single tickets for this production go on sale in August. The best way to secure a seat now is to subscribe.
