The Atlanta Opera at KSU
The Atlanta Opera Studio Tour: The Barber of Seville
Saturday, March 23, 2019, 2 p.m.
Morgan Concert Hall
The talented Atlanta Opera Studio artists perform a 45-minute adaptation of Rossini's classic comic opera. Featuring the original music and performed in Spanish and English, this performance is perfect for children and families. The Barber of Seville demonstrates the power of love to triumph over adversity of every kind when Rosina falls in love with Almaviva at first sight, but there’s one very big tangle: she speaks only Spanish and he speaks only English. Worse yet, Rosina's Aunt Bartolo is plotting to marry her off to one of her old associates. There’s just one man who can unsnarl this mess – Figaro, the most important man-about-town! Proving that even love sometimes requires a little translation, the bilingual barber uses his razor-sharp wit to cut through the confusion, tying up all the matrimonial loose ends in a delightful blend of zany comedy and effervescent music.
