The Barber of Seville

Presented by The Porland Opera

From Friday, June 7, 2019 to Saturday, June 15, 2019 June 7, 2019 June 15, 2019 The Hotel Zags Portland

Conducted by George Manahan

MISCHIEF, LOVE, AND LAUGHTER SPARKLE WITH BEL CANTO MAGIC!

Count Almaviva has fallen for the charming Rosina, and enlists the help of the town barber Figaro to assist in winning her affection. Together they try to outwit her guardian Dr. Bartolo, who also vies for her hand (and inheritance). Classic shenanigans and twists promise to delight audiences both young and young at heart in one of the greatest bel canto comic operas of all time.

ABOUT OUR PRODUCTION

Performed in Italian with English captions.
Approximately 2 hours, with one intermission.

A fun-filled love letter to opera’s brilliant past, Christopher Mattaliano’s colorful and nostalgic production of The Barber of Seville stars Metropolitan Opera baritone John Moore as the scheming barber, mezzo-soprano Aleksandra Romano, last seen at Portland Opera as Isabella in The Italian Girl in Algiers, as Rosina, and tenor Jack Swanson as Count Almaviva.
