The Barber is everywhere!

If you've never been to an opera before, Rossini's The Barber of Seville is a great place to start! Chances are extremely high that you've heard snatches of this opera before. Perhaps in a very familiar Bugs Bunny cartoon?



Or perhaps in a Woody Woodpecker cartoon!



Maybe you've heard it performed by your favourite barbershop sextet....



Or on America's Got Talent? (Skip to 1:00 - unless you'd also like to hear his rendition of La donna e mobile)




See? Opera's not scary at all! The Barber of Seville opens on March 17th.
