Fort Worth Opera and Imagination Fort Worth have joined forces to bring a new family-friendly production to the 2015-2016 season, The Barber of Seville in Texas. This updated, 45-minute retelling of Rossini's comic masterwork, sung in English and Spanish, showcases familiar characters and tunes... but with a fun twist.

It’s love at first sight for Rosina and Almaviva, but there’s one very big tangle: she speaks only Spanish while he speaks only English. Worse yet, her Aunt Bartolo is plotting to marry her off to one of her old, old, old cronies in a day or two. There’s just one man who can unsnarl this mess…And presto! Here’s Figaro, Seville’s most important man-about-town. (Just ask him; he’ll tell you so himself, in one of opera’s most famous arias!) Proving that even love sometimes requires a little translation, the bilingual barber uses his razor-sharp wit to cut through the confusion, tying up all the matrimonial loose ends in a delightful blend of zany comedy and effervescent music.
