YOU KNOW IT. YOU JUST DON’T KNOW IT YET.
Check your powdered wigs at the door and join us in Seville, Spain for a Barber of a different color. While true to every character, every wink and every note, this vibrant performance of The Barber of Seville draws inspiration from the magical realism of filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar to stretch the opera’s Spanish setting into an experience that is as ’60s psychedelic as it is laugh-out-loud hilarious.
Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
