Ready for a playful night filled with love and laughter? Join Tulsa Opera this month as we open our 71st operatic season with the main stage production of The Barber of Seville, one of the world’s most popular and hilarious comic operas.
Artistic Director Tobias Picker says Tulsa Opera’s season opener is whimsical, colorful, and performed by a very special cast.
“First and foremost, Tulsa’s own Sarah Coburn returns to the Tulsa Opera stage as Rosina, the young ward of grumpy old Dr. Bartolo, sung by another Tulsa native and favorite, Peter Strummer, one of the greatest operatic comedians working today,” Tobias says.
“With a golden voice and matinee-idol looks, Steven LaBrie makes his Tulsa Opera debut in the role of Figaro, whose “Largo al factotum” aria will knock your socks off. And the great tenor Aaron Blake returns to our stage as Count Almaviva after his enormous success as Nadir in The Pearl Fishers two years ago.”
“Our production of The Barber of Seville also sees the Tulsa Opera debut of the brilliant young conductor Roberto Kalb and a return engagement as director for Harry Silverstein, who made magic for us directing last season’s The Stars Align,” Picker adds.
