FEEEEEEEGARO!

A classic character comes to life as a motorcyle-riding rascal in Opera for the Young’s adaptation of Rossini’s "The Barber of Seville".

Set in the fabulous 1950s, this comic opera will leave your students laughing, cheering and inspired. It’s a riotous romp featuring a lovesick count, the blushing object of his affection, a crusty old doctor, and, of course, Figaro. Issues of class consciousness dissolve in the face of true love and hijinks. In this one-of-a-kind interactive event, student choristers perform in their roles as students of Seville High, a police officer and a very confused music teacher – alongside the professional cast members.
