BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA, IL

Rossini's comic gem Il Barbiere di Siviglia features Isabel Leonard, Lawrence Brownlee, and Christopher Maltman

The Met's effervescent production of Rossini's classic comedy Il Barbiere di Siviglia—featuring some of the most instantly recognizable melodies in all of opera—returns with a dynamic young cast including Lawrence Brownlee as the lovestruck Count Almaviva; Isabel Leonard as Rosina, the feisty ward who captures his heart; and Christopher Maltman in his first Met performances of Figaro, the title barber whose skills extend far beyond hair-cutting. In an acclaimed staging by Bartlett Sher, Il Barbiere di Siviglia also stars Maurizio Muraro as Dr. Bartolo and Paata Burchuladze as Don Basilio, with rising conductor Michele Mariotti on the podium.
