The Barber of Seville

Jun 14, 2014

06/21/2014 - Composed by Gioacchino Rossini

The eponymous barber Figaro (baritone Nathan Gunn) is the ultimate fixer in this rollicking comedy. He struts his stuff in the famous "Largo al factotum" aria, "Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!" He takes sides in a love triangle, helping Count Almaviva (tenor Alek Shrader) woo and win the beautiful Rosina (mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard) from her old, lecherous guardian Dr. Bartolo (baritone Alessandro Corbelli).
