The Master Matchmaker Returns in a New Vision From Director Matthew Ozawa

 

He loves her. She loves him. They want to be together. But in 2021, that’s going to require the kind of creativity only the quick-witted barber Figaro himself can summon.

This spring, live opera returns to the Bay Area with an outdoor, drive-in production of The Barber of Seville, a zany new, 90-minute adaptation of Rossini’s romantic comedy sung in English.

 

But the drama on stage pales in comparison to the drama going on behind the scenes. See what happens when the hijinks of opera make the leap into real life in this comedy starring Grammy Award-winning baritone Lucas Meachem and real-life couple mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack and tenor Alek Shrader as the torn apart lovers. Roderick Cox conducts this sparkling score with a chamber ensemble from the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.
