The Barber of Seville, Edmonton Opera.
Opera Lyra presents our own unique take on Rossini’s great classic, The Barber of Seville! Set in a 1940’s movie studio in Seville, Rosina is a young movie star kept in check by her producer, and the owner of the studio, Bartolo. She is constantly surrounded by his “goons”. Figaro is the studio stylist and confidant. The movie they are working on is the story of Carmen. Mayhem ensues!
