ROSSINI’S THE BARBER OF SEVILLE with the WOLF TRAP OPERA and LIDIYA YANKOVSKAYA as CONDUCTOR @ Filene Center at Wolf Trap
Aug 9 @ 8:15 pm

Music by Giachino Rossini
Libretto by Cesare Sterbini
Set and costumes from Houston Grand Opera

 

The Barber of Seville is a co-production of Houston Grand Opera Association, Canadian Opera Company, Opéra National De Bordeaux, and Opera Australia.

Figaro, Figaro, Figaro! One of the world’s most recognizable tunes from opera’s most beloved comedy. A wily barber aids the captivating Count Almaviva in wooing the vivacious Rosina right from under her cantankerous guardian’s nose. Uproariously funny, The Barber of Seville brims with sensational music, high-flying vocal fireworks, and some of opera’s most famous arias as its story twists and turns in the quest for love.

  • Pre-performance discussion on the Farmhouse Lawn at 7:15 pm
  • Performance running Time: 2 hours 45 minutes, including one intermission
  • Sung in Italian with projected English translations
