Rossini’s laugh-out-loud romantic comedy has been entertaining audiences for more than 200 years with its outrageous stage antics and vocal acrobatics. Featuring some of opera’s most recognizable tunes, audiences are sure to leave the theater singing Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiii-garo!
A savvy young woman must outsmart a pompous old lecher who stands between her and her true love. Hilarity ensues as the would-be couple, aided and abetted by the wily barber Figaro, run through a barrage of trickery that includes false identities, a most unusual voice lesson and opera’s funniest case of scarlet fever. With a few close shaves along the way, in the end, time’s up for the old goat and love triumphs over all.
