The Barber of Seville

By Gioacchino Rossini
English Adaptation by
Donald Pippin

Music Direction by Mary Chun
Stage Direction by Elly Lichenstein

A Co-Production with
Pocket Opera

Single tickets available Jan 18, 2019

Rossini’s laugh-out-loud romantic comedy has been entertaining audiences for more than 200 years with its outrageous stage antics and vocal acrobatics. Donald Pippin’s famed translation guarantees the giggles and guffaws! 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.
