It’s one close shave after another in this all-time comedy classic featuring the world’s most famous barber.

The Synopsis

In this prelude to The Marriage of Figaro, the young Count Almaviva falls in love with Rosina. He enlists the help of his former servant, the jack-of-all-trades barber, Figaro, to help him free her from the clutches of her greedy, aged guardian, Dr. Bartolo.The Count wants Rosina to love him for himself and not his money and so pretends to be a penniless student. Rosina returns his love, but she’s a prisoner; Bartolo keeps her locked in his house and plans to marry her himself. Figaro smuggles Almaviva into the house and a hilarious series of intrigues follow.
