Rossini’s famous two-act comic opera, The Barber of Seville, is a masterpiece of inventive scenes instantly moving from one mood to another using catchy melodies and exploding rhythms. Set in 18th century Seville, Spain, the opera is based on a comedy by Pierre Beaumarchais, the famous French dramatist. It features a barber named Figaro who wants to help Count Almavivo, who has fallen in love with the beautiful Rosina, the young ward of Dr. Bartolo. However Dr. Bartolo wants to wed her himself. The story unfolds in many hilarious scenes that include secret letters, disguises and stealthy tricks, with many aided by the ever-present Figaro. It concludes with the happiest of endings!

Presented by Connecticut Lyric Opera and the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. Fully staged with costumes and scenery, and sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
