Rossini's "The Barber of Seville" is considered to be the finest comic opera in existence! From start to finish, it is marvelously crafted, brilliantly inventive and uproariously funny.
The plot, based on Beaumarchais's classic play, features Figaro, the wily barber and jack-of-all-trades, who is here, there and everywhere, helping Count Almaviva steal away the beautiful Rosina from her curmudgeonly old guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Outrageous disguises, bold schemes and a missing ladder all figure into the plot, but the real reason to see 'Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville)’ is to revel in Rossini's dazzling melodies.
Gioachino Rossini's Barber, with lyrics by Cesare Sterbini has proven to be one of the greatest masterpieces of comedy within music, and has been described as the opera buffa of all "opere buffe". Even after two hundred years, its popularity on the modern opera stage attests to that greatness
This fully staged production is sure to delight opera goers of all ages. Teatro Lirico D'Europa has developed a strong history of success in Newberry and worldwide -- with hundreds of rave reviews for full-scale opera productions presented in theaters and at festivals across the United States and Europe.
