Il Barbiere di Siviglia
(The Barber of Seville)
Approximate running time 3 hrs. 10 min.
Lawrence Brownlee, 2006 Tucker Award and Marian Anderson Award winner, makes his eagerly anticipated Met debut as Count Almaviva, opposite star mezzo Joyce DiDonato as the feisty Rosina. Russell Braun is Figaro, John Del Carlo is Dr. Bartolo, and Samuel Ramey is Don Basilio.
Directed by Bartlett Sher and designed by Michael Yeargan (both of the Tony Award®-winning The Light in the Piazza), this is a Barbiere that is light on its feet, with mobile sets that allow the comic action to swirl from stage to audience and back again. Maurizio Benini conducts.
