Come see the original play that served as the basis for Mozart's famous opera. This hilarious farce picks up three years following the end of The Barber of Seville. We follow the hijinks of the too-clever Figaro and his duplicitous master, the Count Almaviva, as the servant gets ready to marry the love of his life. Mistaken identities and all the elements of farce abound in this comic masterpiece.
A person committed to the study of theater within the framework of a liberal education must be prepared to work toward two goals: first, a thorough competence in the basic skill of dramatic expression and interpretation; and concurrently, a view that comprehends dramatic art as it relates to, expresses, and extends the surrounding culture.
