PREVIEW:The Barber of Seville

by Justin Haley


Opening this evening in the Distillery District is the new adaptation of The Barber of Seville from Soulpepper . We are excited to see a musical arrive at Soulpepper again and we are looking forward to what the company does with the piece.

The Barber of Seville is a free-wheeling adaptation by Michael O'Brien and John Millard, based on the play by Beaumarchais and the opera by Rossini. This all-new update follows the beloved story of the young Count Almaviva and his pursuit of the untouchable Rosina with the help of the irrepressible Figaro, Barber of Seville.
