The 83rd Season from the Florentine comes to a delightful close with Rossini’s The Barber of Seville.
Our comic hero, Figaro, takes a machiavellian center stage in the hilarious manipulations that unfold in this great operatic folly. Deceptions and counter-deceptions frame Rossini’s frothy score in this delightful and adventurous romp. From the first beautiful moment to the opera’s hilariously happy ending, audiences will be rapt by the score of one of the greatest comic operatic masterpieces.
Join us for the Talk Opera event in the Anello Atrium one hour prior to the performance:
Corliss Phillabaum, Professor of Theater at UW Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, talks about The Barber of Seville in-depth one hour before curtain prior to each mainstage performance for all ticket holders. Professor Phillabaum keeps Florentine audiences returning for his unique perspective at each opera’s lecture.
Talk Opera is FREE with each ticket purchase.
