Based on Beaumarchais' classic French comedy, the opera tells of the clever barber Figaro and how he assists the noble Count Almaviva in winning the hand of his beloved Rosina by outwitting her lecherous guardian, Doctor Bartolo. Riotous comedy, memorable arias and spectacular ensembles abound in what is arguably the greatest Italian opera buffa ever written. Of Barber, Beethoven told Rossini: "I congratulate you. It will be played as long as Italian opera exists".
