The Barber of Seville


Abel; Leonard, Shrader, Pogossov, Del Carlo, Bisch

This season’s holiday entertainment, Bartlett Sher’s production of Rossini’s comic masterpiece has an abridged running length of two hours and is sung in English. It’s the perfect opera for kids and adults, featuring slapstick comedy and pure romance. The charming and irresistible cast of young stars includes Isabel Leonard as the lovely Rosina, Alek Shrader as the Count who woos her, and Rodion Pogossov as the conspiring barber.
