“Figaro!  Figaro!  Figaro!”  From the mind of Rossini, King of Italian comic opera, comes this undisputed masterpiece of love and laughter, The Barber of Seville. So popular and funny in fact, that even Bugs Bunny got into the act once with a cartoon titled “The Rabbit of Seville.”  A beautiful girl must enter an arranged marriage with old Doctor Bartolo.  But she is in love with the handsome Count Almaviva.  There’s only one man who can help them!  Can Figaro save the day?  Will the young lovers be united?  Will old Bartolo get his closest shave ever?  All these questions will be answered in this ultimate evening of smiles.
