The Scene:

Dr. Bartolo’s house in Seville

The Story:

Count Almaviva loves the beautiful Rosina, who is kept a virtual prisoner in the house of her lecherous guardian Dr. Bartolo. Almaviva hires jack-of-all-trades Figaro to liberate her, which he does with an ingenious array of hilarious tricks and disguises. In this not-to-be missed production, even Dr. Bartolo’s house takes part in the action!
