THE BARBER OF SEVILLE by Gioachino Rossini
March 9 - March 18, 2012
Sung in Italian with projected English translation
Music by Gioachino Rossini- Libretto by Cesare Sterbini
Figaro, Figaro, Figaro! Rossini is undoubtedly the top dog of comic opera and The Barber of Seville is his undisputed masterpiece. Rossini generously stamps every moment with his own unique and irresistible mixture of manic madness and soaring lyricism. Patter songs, love duets, serenades, a shaving scene out of Max Sennett, a foiled elopement, a happy ending, even a thunderstorm. The Barber has it all … and more.
