Orlando Philharmonic Presents Rossini’s The Barber of Seville October 25 and 27, 2013

The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will produce Rossini’s comedic opera, The Barber of Seville, at the Bob Carr P.A.C. on October 25 and 27.

The Barber of SevilleThe Barber of Seville tells the story of how town barber and local nuisance, Figaro, helps the young Rosina escape an unwanted marriage to her elderly guardian, Dr. Bartolo. Meanwhile, Figaro helps the Count Almaviva evade Bartolo’s close watch and win Rosina’s heart through a series of disguises and tricks. Figaro’s aria, “Largo al factotum,” is one of the most recognized in all of opera.

The Philharmonic’s production will be fully staged with costumes, sets and projected backdrops. Unlike past Philharmonic productions which have featured the orchestra on stage, The Barber of Seville will see the orchestra perform in the pit, as in grand opera. The opera will be sung in Italian, with English translations projected above the stage.

Performances are at 8pm on Friday, October 25, and at 2pm on Sunday, October 27. Tickets are $20-$82, and are available at 407-770-0071 or OrlandoPhil.org/opera. Select tickets are half price or $10 on the day of the show for students with a valid student ID.
