Gioachino Rossini's The Barber of Seville premiered in 1816. It focuses on the love struck Count Almaviva who is vying for the affections of the beautiful Rosina. Unfortunately, she is guarded by her elder ward and would-be groom Bartolo. The count assumes several guises to conceal his wealth and enlists the aid of former servant Figaro.
Principal roles are played by students Brian Yeakley as Count Almavia, James Rodriguez and Blas Canedo alternating as Figaro, and Kyla Knox and Julie Thornton alternating as Rosina.
