An improbable trio: an enamored Spanish nobleman, an innocent girl, held captive in her tutor&rsquos house, and a barber. A maid and a servant get involved. Intrigues, avidity, plans to elope. A storm. A balcony. A disappearing ladder. Finally, love!

The opera

Watched and continuously spied upon by her tutor Don Bartolo, Rosina is kept out of reach of any man. The enamored Count Almaviva has made it his goal not only to approach her but to make her the object of his love. With the assistance of Figaro, the audacious and intrepid barber, he plots plans of elopement to free the girl from her entrapment.
