About The Barber of Seville
Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiigaro!!
Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his charm to work as he helps Count Almaviva woo the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her greedy guardian Bartolo keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. Crazy antics abound and even Berta the maid gets involved. But, no challenge is too great for Figaro’s madcap schemes! Filled with some of opera’s most famous tunes, this is a comedy not to miss!
Brett Sprague……………Count Almaviva
Ben Sieverding…………..Dr. Bartolo
Directed by Cherity Koepke | Accompanied by Taylor Baldwin
