You can’t disguise true love!

A maiden forced into marriage, a handsome Count in disguise, star-crossed lovers, and the ingenious barber of Seville.  Will everyone live happily ever after, or will the beautiful Rosina be forced to marry the grumpy old Dr. Bartolo?  Join us for all the music, mischief, and magic to find out.
