To launch the 2017 Festival themed “Funny at Five”, your Festival Director has built a show to introduce this season’s gems, “The Barber of Seville” and “The Marriage of Figaro”, two classical comedies based on the brilliant Beaumarchais plays. Meet the 2017 Festival Artists throughout this 90 minute program. It will tell the story about romantic conquests and battles between the classes. Told through music from not only Rossini and Mozart, but also modern musical theatre, song, and a bit of Bugs Bunny, Rossini himself falls asleep in the Barber’s chair only to be transported into the world of the clever Figaro. A delightful way to learn more about opera and fun for all ages at Savannah’s new performance hall!
