By Gioachino Rossini

Filled with florals, frills, and frivolity, Rossini’s vivacious romp starts with an iconic overture, gains speed with a parade of familiar melodies, and concludes with an “all is forgiven” finale bubbling over with joy. The prequel to Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro finds quick-witted Figaro helping Count Almaviva whisk fair Rosina away from her ghastly guardian through a series of schemes fit for a Bugs Bunny cartoon. The “riotously funny” (The Australian) new production delights with colorful sets and costumes inspired by the seductive and playful spirit of southern Spain.

In Italian with English subtitles
