THE BARBER OF SEVILLE Sensory-Friendly Rehearsal

Presented by Cincinnati Opera at Music Hall, Cincinnati OH

Jul 01 2023
THE BARBER OF SEVILLE Sensory-Friendly Rehearsal

Enjoy a working piano rehearsal of The Barber of Seville. Tickets are FREE for this special presentation for those with sensory sensitivities and their guests.

The Barber of Seville: A Sensory-Friendly Piano Rehearsal

Figaro, Seville’s most beloved barber, plays matchmaker for his former employer, Count Almaviva. The Count loves Rosina, but she’s the ward of the devious Doctor Bartolo, who has designs on wedding her himself. To win Rosina’s heart, the Count enlists Figaro to cook up disguises, double dealings, and deceits to fool old Bartolo and set Rosina free. Rossini’s beloved comedy reminds us that sometimes, on the path to true love, the last thing you want to be is yourself. With vibrant sets and costumes, memorable tunes, and laughs, The Barber of Seville is a delight and perfect for the entire family.
