New Zealand Opera presents
The Barber of Seville

Dashing Count Almaviva is in love with the feisty young Rosina. But her guardian, Dr Bartolo, is determined to marry her himself. Cue Figaro – also known as The Barber of Seville – with a series of hare-brained schemes, one of which just might work.
