If You Enjoy Opera, This Theatrical Performance Will Be Up Your Alley
Most everyone is familiar with the opera The Barber of Seville by Gioachino Rossini, but few know that the opera is based on the 1775 play by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. Beaumarchais’ play is the origin for such iconic characters as Counta Almaviva, Bartholo, Rosine, and of course, Figaro. “This piece of theatre is so ripe with comedy that it directly spawned two operas, three plays, and a comic strip,” says director John Johnston. “I’m thrilled to be able to produce Barber. It’s one of those forgotten scripts that I’ve been champing at the bit to direct.” The hilarious love story of the dashing Count Almaviva as he woos the sweet and beautiful Rosine is sure to have audiences rolling in the aisles. Award-winning CTC Company Artist Philp Hays will portray Almaviva.
