This Saturday at noon, Wisconsin Public Radio presents Madison Opera’s production of Rossini’s “The Barber Of Seville.” This is the second of two broadcasts from the most recent Madison Opera season.
One of the greatest comic operas ever written, the story features a count in multiple disguises, a young woman trying to outwit her guardian, and a barber being paid to ensure a happy ending. (See the complete synopsis here.)
The cast includes Emily Fons as Rosina; John Irvin as Count Almaviva; Will Liverman as Figaro; Alan Dunbar as Dr. Bartolo; Thomas Forde as Don Basilio; and Chelsea Morris as Berta.
