Prepare for laughs and glorious music in this original romantic comedy. Count Almaviva is set on marrying the lovely Rosina – but he wants to be sure she will marry him for love and not money.

Disguised as a poor student he serenades his lady, but the path to true love is blocked by Rosina’s grasping guardian. Can the hare-brained schemes of the ever resourceful barber, Figaro, ensure that it all ends happily?
