San Diego Opera
Purchase with Confidence Program
One of the most important ways we can serve our community is to sometimes just be there. It may seem simple, but it is important to have familiar things you can count on, especially in times of great uncertainty. We’ve been in this community for over 55 years, and we have no plans to go anywhere. If you purchase tickets to a San Diego Opera performance and are unable to attend because you are not feeling well or do not feel safe, we will work with you to discuss options such as exchanging your ticket for a different performance or holding the value of your purchase to use for a future event. In these unprecedented times your support will enable us to continue to present opera to our city. We hope to see you soon.
The Barber of Seville
by Gioachino Rossini
Darlene Marcos Shiley - Lead Production Sponsor
At the San Diego Civic TheatreFigaro, Figaro, Fiiiigggaarrro! He’s Seville’s “King of Lather and Foam” and master of a few other tricks as well. Barber by day, matchmaker by night, Figaro puts his wiles to work as he aids Count Almaviva in wooing the beautiful Rosina. She’s such a catch that her disreputable guardian Dr. Bartolo keeps her under lock and key with the intent of marrying her himself. But no challenge is too great for Figaro and with hilarious pranks, mistaken identities, and general tomfoolery at every turn, we’ll find out which marriage is made in heaven! Featuring “Largo al factotum,” the famous aria heard everywhere from car commercials to Bugs Bunny, and “Una voce poco fa,” Barber contains some of the most delightful music ever composed. Don’t miss this popular opera full of romance and laugh-out-loud moments.
Sung in Italian with projected English translations. Tickets start at $45.
