5:30 p.m.Capital Heights Lyric Opera presents Barber of Seville by Rossini
Figaro, Figaro, Figaro! Rossini is undoubtedly the top dog of comic opera and The Barber of Seville is his undisputed masterpiece. Rossini generously stamps every moment with his own unique and irresistible mixture of manic madness and soaring lyricism. Patter songs, love duets, serenades, a shaving scene out of Mack Sennett, a foiled elopement, a happy ending, even a thunderstorm. The Barber has it all … and more.
