Nichols Lighting Design: Shawn Kaufman ----- ABOUT PAISIELLO'S THE BARBER OF SEVILLE: The dashing Count Almaviva wants to marry the beautiful Rosina, but the only problem is that she is locked inside the house of Dr. Bartolo, who also wants to marry her. With the help of the clever barber Figaro, the Count must figure out a way to rescue his love. With a libretto by Giuseppe Petrosellini, Paisiello’s Barber stays true to its Beaumarchais roots, focusing more faithfully on the love story between the Count and Rosina and less on the Barber’s antics. After its premiere, the opera quickly became a staple of the repertoire and inspired a young Rossini to write his own version. ----- THE FIGARO PROJECT: This summer, On Site Opera kicks off its most ambitious undertaking to date: The Figaro Project. On Site Opera’s three-year journey through Beaumarchais’ Figaro Trilogy consists of adaptations that, in the company’s view, adhere more faithfully to the original plays. The Figaro Project continues with the North American premiere of Marcos Portugal’s "The Marriage of Figaro" (Summer 2016), followed by the U.S. premiere of Darius Milhaud’s "The Guilty Mother" (Summer 2017), in celebration Milhaud’s 125th Birthday. -----
