LISTEN 7:30 p.m. Thursday
Rossini's beloved and irresistible rom-com is a cut above. Figaro, Seville's quick-witted barber, helps a young woman flee an unsuitable suitor and find true love. Naturally, nothing goes according to plan, and Figaro must think on his feet to save the day. The instantly recognizable music sparkles in this razor-sharp, comedic masterpiece.
