Gioachino Rossini's laugh-out-loud romantic comedy The Barber of Seville returned to Opera Santa Barbara during our 17|18 Season. Entertaining audiences for more than 200 years with its outrageous stage antics, vocal acrobatics and featuring some of opera’s most recognizable tunes, audiences are sure to leave the theater singing Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiii-garo!
“Opera Santa Barbara’s sparkling production of The Barber of Seville emphasized outrageous behavior and disguises. Alexander Elliott cut an enviable Figaro, Cassandra Zoé Velasco’s Rosina glowed from within, and Andrew Bidlack positively threw out the book as a hell-raising, cross-dressing Count Almaviva. Under the baton of maestro Kostis Protopapas, the orchestra released the playful joy of an irrepressible score.”
