Don’t miss out on this fun-filled adventure! Join Figaro, the big man on campus, the “Barber” of Seville High School, as he helps the brilliant Rosie in her hilarious quest for true love. But is the object of her affections really who he says he is? Rossini’s thrilling opera, set here in a 1950s high school, is filled with catchy tunes, silly antics, virtuosic singing, and lots of laughs.

Please be aware that strobe lighting effects will be used as part of this performance. Thank you.

Selections from Gioachino Rossini's comic opera, The Barber of Seville, sung in English.

With Image Magnification (IMAG) on the big screen for a closer look at the singers, conductor and orchestra musicians!
