Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiiigaro!!
He’s Seville’s “King of Lather and Foam”…and master of a few other tricks as well! Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his wiles to work as he aids the Count in wooing the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her sleazy guardian keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. But no challenge is too great for Figaro’s trickery. And, with laughter at every turn, the cunning Rosina is no slouch at manipulating things herself! This riotous musical comedy is one of the most popular in the operatic repertoire. With whimsical designs based on the style of Belgian surrealist artist Magritte, you’ll see fluffy clouds, flying chairs, a barber pole and, of course, even raining bowler hats. It’s a visual and musical feast featuring Lucas Meachem as the conniving Figaro, Silvia Tro Santafé as the delectable Rosina, conductor Antonello Allemandi finding every note of Rossini’s happy score and John Copley directing this hilarious production. The running time is approximately 3 hours and 6 minutes including one intermission.
