If listening to the Metropolitan Opera Saturday mornings on kcme isn't enough to satisfy your appetite for opera--now's your chance to indulge your passion in person.
Opera Colorado is staging several performances of The Barber of Seville.
“Barber is a very light-hearted funny evening,” said director David Gately. “The music is bubbly and champagnelike when you listen to it. And it is very recognizable for an audience so that’s part of the fun. Immediately when the overture starts, there’s a murmur across the audience and people realize they know it, they heard it in a shaving commercial or something. They all know ‘Figaro, Figaro, Figaro’ and they all know the Bugs Bunny cartoons.”
The performances are staged at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, in the Denver Performing Arts Complex, 14th and Curtis, in downtown Denver.
Sat., February 6, 7:30 pm
