The opera is based on Beaumarchais\u0027 comedy Le Barbier de Seville. The action occupies a single day, is set in Seville, and revolves around the devious efforts of the young Count Almaviva, aided by Figaro, the barber of Seville, to woo and marry Rosina, the ward of old Dr. Bartolo, who intends to wed the girl himself to acquire her dowry. After a hilarious series of machinations the young couple succeed in marrying against Bartolo\u0027s wishes.
