In late eighteenth century Seville, a young girl. Rosina, is kept a virtual prisoner by her guardian, Doctor Bartolo, who hopes to marry when she is of age and enrich himself from her dowry. The young and ardent Count Almaviva, who wants Rosina to love him for himself and not for his wealth or title, engages the help of Figaro, the local factotem and his former servant, to frustrate Bartolo's plan and marry Rosina himself.
In the first half you will enjoy "The Impresario" by Mozart a fully costumed 18th century comic opera sparkling with wit and humour. With powdered wigs and period costumes.
The second half consists of a "pot pouri" of inspiring music. A selection of well known arias, duets, trios and ensembles - the Pearl Fishers duet, the Lakme duet (the BA theme) from operas and musicals, ranging from Mozart to Sondheim, interspersed with informative and comic anecdotes.
