The first opera music you ever heard…even if you didn’t know it at the time!
Rossini’s The Barber of Seville includes one of the world’s most recognizable pieces of music, the famous “Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!” aria featured in Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Count Almaviva enlists his friend Figaro—the barber of the opera’s title—to help him woo the lovely Rosina right under the nose of her overly protective guardian. Their trickery goes awry, but young love prevails in this laugh-out-loud comedy.
