Help Buy Costumes for the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra Production of The Barber of Seville

Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra

In its 2013-2014 season, the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will present Rossini’s uproarious comedy The Barber of Seville, and they need your help to purchase costumes, of which there are many.

In The Barber of Seville, the love-struck Count Almaviva disguises himself not once, but three times. Taking the advice of the local barber Figaro, Almaviva becomes a poor student, drunken soldier, and music tutor—three very different characters, requiring three believable costumes in order to fool Dr. Bartolo. As if that weren’t enough, Rosina needs two costumes, and members of the chorus double as soldiers, officers, policeman, and even a notary.

Even $10 will help, and every donation of $10 or more receives special incentives ranging from a shout-out on the Orlando Phil’s Twitter and Facebook pages, to having your name stitched into a costume piece, inviations to a dress rehersal, and more.

Bank of America has also pledged to contribute 50 cents for every $1 donated by the public.
