Why See Metropolitan Opera: Il Barbiere di Siviglia?
Mozart's wittiest opera
Disguises and false identities abound as men - both young and old - vie for the hand of Rosina in one of the funniest and most frenetic operas ever composed! Rossini's most popular opera returns to the Metropolitan Opera with Pretty Yende as the beauty Rosina and Javier Camarena as Almaviva, the romantic youth trying to woo her, and Peter Mattei as the inimitable Figaro.
The first in the trilogy starring the mischievous Count Almavira and his wily servant Figaro as they take on the adventure of wooing the witty beauty Rosina, right out from under the nose of Dr Bartolo. With devious disguises, meddlesome mishaps, the fate of the heart of this young girl is one thrilling and hilarious ride.
