In his ruthless attempts to seduce the beautiful Rosina (mezzo-soprano Isabel Léonard), who is the ward of a cantankerous old guardian hoping to marry her, Count Almaviva (tenor Lawrence Brownlee) enlists his former valet, the barber Figaro (baritone Christopher Maltman).

Unexpected twists of fate, hilariously complicated situations, and irresistibly charming music have made The Barber of Seville the greatest masterpiece of the Italian opera buffa style. Succumb again to the charms of this sparkling 2014 Metropolitan Opera production!
