The Barber of Seville
Conducted by George Manahan
Directed by Christopher Mattaliano
MISCHIEF, LOVE, AND LAUGHTER SPARKLE WITH BEL CANTO MAGIC!
Count Almaviva has fallen for the charming Rosina, and enlists the help of the town barber Figaro to assist in winning her affection. Together they try to outwit her guardian Dr. Bartolo, who also vies for her hand (and inheritance). Classic shenanigans and twists promise to delight audiences both young and young at heart in one of the greatest bel canto comic operas of all time.
ABOUT OUR PRODUCTION
Performed in Italian with English captions.
Approximately 2 hours, with one intermission.
A fun-filled love letter to opera’s brilliant past, Christopher Mattaliano’s colorful and nostalgic production of The Barber of Seville stars Metropolitan Opera baritone John Moore as the scheming barber, mezzo-soprano Aleksandra Romano, last seen at Portland Opera as Isabella in The Italian Girl in Algiers, as Rosina, and tenor Jack Swanson as Count Almaviva.
The performance of The Barber of Seville on June 9, 2019 at 2PM will include an audio description of the visual and physical events on stage for patrons who are blind or have low vision. For patrons who are deaf or hard of hearing, each performance is visually translated with English text projected above the stage. If you require wheelchair, ADA, or companion seating, please let our Patron Services team know when you purchase tickets, so that we can ensure your visit to the opera is an excellent one.
