F-i-i-i-garo! Fills The Madrid Theatre June 9 & 10!
Called the greatest comic opera of all time, Rossini meets Reality TV in director Dylan F. Thomas’ new production of The Barber Of Seville, June 9 at 7:30 pm and June 10 at 3pm, at the Madrid Theatre in Canoga Park.
Count Almaviva has fallen in love with the young and beautiful Rosina, but she is kept under lock and key by her guardian, Dr Bartolo, who intends to marry her himself. Figaro, the local barber and resident ‘fixer’, signs up to help the rescue mission and has soon invented an outrageously complicated scheme to smuggle Almaviva into Bartolo’s house, and to smuggle Rosina out, right under her guardian’s nose.
