The Barber of Seville

Caught between a conniving older man, who would abuse his position of power over her to marry her for her money, and an attractive, mysterious younger man, who pursues her in a series of charming and seductive disguises, Rosina faces a choice between a secure but loveless future or a step into the unknown following a passion that comes with no guarantees. Aided by the clever Figaro, will Count Almaviva convince her that his love is true?

With music that is joyful, witty and exhilarating, The Barber of Seville is the juiciest of romantic comedies.
