Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiigggaarrro!

He’s Seville’s "King of Lather and Foam" and master of a few other tricks as well. Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his wiles to work as he aids Count Almaviva in wooing the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her disreputable guardian Dr. Bartolo keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. But no challenge is too great for Figaro and with hilarious pranks, mistaken identities, and general tomfoolery at every turn, we’ll find out which marriage is made in heaven!

San Diego Opera stages "The Barber of Seville," the beloved opera that features "Largo al factotum," the famous aria heard everywhere from car commercials to Bugs Bunny, and "Una voce poco fa," Barber contains some of the most delightful music ever composed. Don’t miss this popular opera full of romance and laugh-out-loud moments.
