Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his wiles to work as he aids the Count in wooing the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her sleazy guardian keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. But no challenge is too great for Figaro’s trickery. And, with laughter at every turn, the cunning Rosina is no slouch at manipulating things herself!
Beaumarchais's story is a prequel to "The Marriage of Figaro." This riotous musical comedy sets the stage perfectly for the more complicated matters to come and is one of the most popular in the operatic repertoire.
