The beloved comic opera, one of the funniest and most joyous in history, comes to Tacoma. Gioachino Rossini’s romp has been delighting audiences for nearly 200 years with its celebrated antics and arias. The dashing Count Almaviva, in cahoots with Figaro the Barber of Seville, plan to rescue the lovely Rosina from the clutches of the greedy Dr Bartolo.
