2016 is the 200th anniversary of the first performance of The Barber of Seville and this delicious dose of comedy and effervescent music, up close in the Playhouse, is the perfect way to say – Happy Birthday Figaro!
The Barber of Seville follows the story of the dashing Count Almaviva who has lost his heart to the sassy young maiden Rosina. But Rosina’s guardian is determined to marry her himself until Figaro – king of charisma and silken style – leads the charge to unite the young lovers through a series of hilarious, “fool proof” schemes. Will it all add up to a Spanish mission impossible?
