    About The Barber of Seville
    Disguises and false identities abound as men - young and old - vie for the hand of the beautiful Rosina in one of the funniest and most frenetic operas ever composed! Rossini's delightful 19th-century romp centers on "Figaro, Figaro, Figaro," a scheming barber and jack-of-all-trades, sung by Dallas Opera favorite Nathan Gunn, who plots with Count Almaviva to release Bartolo's ward from her gilded cage.
    The all-star ensemble includes acclaimed mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as the gorgeous-yet-spunky Rosina, lyric tenor Alek Shrader as the love-struck Almaviva, and commanding Turkish bass Burak Bilgili as Don Basilio in their much-anticipated TDO debuts. It also marks the welcome return of the inimitable Donato DiStefano, a comic veteran of previous Dallas Opera productions of Barber and La Cenerentola, in a role he has sung all over the world: Dr. Bartolo.
    From the first notes of one of the world's most famous overtures to the final curtain, your heart will be racing - but not for the exit!
