The Barber of Seville
Just need a trim? A stylish shave? How about a little help with your love life? Where do you turn? Well, to your trusted barber, of course! Rossini’s perfect masterpiece of opera buffa, The Barber of Seville follows the exploits of Figaro, the mischievous barber, tossing you from one hilarious situation to another! Top it all off with a score that is infectious – and you’ll soon discover why this is the world’s most popular comic opera!
As the all-knowing barber, Virginia Beach native Will Liverman, a graduate of Virginia’s Governor’s School for the Arts, who is making quite a name for himself as a leading baritone in major opera houses, will enchant you in his Virginia Opera debut. Joined by a cast of Virginia Opera audience favorites, as we welcome back Megan Marino and Andrew Owens, former Herndon Foundation Emerging Artists. This cast will amaze and delight. Michael Shell (The Magic Flute 2013) directs this rendition of his clever production, enjoyed at leading opera houses across the country, which is sure to leave you laughing in the aisles!
