Metropolitan Opera: Rossini’s The Barber of Seville

Airs Saturday, December 26, at 12 noon. The 2015-16 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a live broadcast of the Met’s holiday presentation of Rossini’s comic gem The Barber of Seville – an abridged version of the opera, sung in English, aimed at audiences of all ages. The performance stars Isabel Leonard as the feisty Rosina, Taylor Stayton as the love struck Count Almaviva, and Elliot Madore as Figaro, the barber and jack-of-all-trades who brings them together. The cast also includes Valeriano Lanchas as Dr. Bartolo and Robert Pomakov as Don Basilio; Antony Walker conducts. The Barber of Seville will be heard live over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. CT on Saturday, December 26.
