Michigan Opera Theatre presents “The Barber of Seville.” Performances are on select dates Nov. 10-18 at the Detroit Opera House. Created by Gioachino Rossini and first performed in 1816, the comedic opera has remained a favorite since its Rome premiere in 1816. The MOT production is directed by Christopher Mattaliano.
The story from MOT:
“Figaro, Figaro!” This Rossini classic features one of the most well-known pieces of music in history. This prequel to The Marriage of Figaro tells the story of how Count Almaviva wins the hand of his beloved Rosina with the help of his clever barber, Figaro. Full of laughter and beautiful music, see why The Barber of Seville has delighted audiences for more than two centuries.
