“Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!”

Even if you haven’t seen it live, you already know its famous music from cartoons and contemporary culture. Now, experience the world’s greatest comic opera in person!

Determined to win the heart of the beautiful and feisty Rosina, Count Almaviva enlists the help of Figaro, the intrepid barber of Seville, to steal her away from her curmudgeonly guardian, who wants to marry her himself!

The clever barber instigates a barrage of merry misunderstandings, dubious disguises, and double-crossings galore to ensure that true love triumphs after all!

An acclaimed Figaro, baritone Will Liverman is "both mellow-voiced and charismatic."

–The New York Times

Treasured from the Met to San Francisco Opera, "Megan Marino supplies a tangy mezzo and impressive vocal fireworks."

–Dallas Morning News
