The Barber of Seville

CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: The Atlanta Opera’s staging of Gioachino Rossini’s beloved opera features mezzo soprano Stephanie Lauricella as Rosina, tenor Taylor Stayton as Count Almaviva and baritone Joseph Lattanzi singing the role of Figaro, the matchmaking barber. More than two centuries after its premiere in Rome, Italy, Rossini’s <i>opera buffa suprema</i> remains in standard rotation thanks to its instantly recognizable overture, delightful arias and zany sitcom libretto by Cesare Sterbini. — DD

“Figaro! Figaro! Figaro!”

Everyone’s favorite barber pulls all the levels in this comedic romp featuring a fiery young girl, her lecherous old guardian, and a smitten young nobleman. It’s all up to the wily Figaro to stay one step ahead of the shenanigans, and see to it that true love wins in the end. From the famous overture to its rapid-fire vocalism, this laugh-out-loud opera is a winner that works its charms on people of all ages.
