The Atlanta Opera Announces Virtual Auditions for the Role of Figaro in the 2020-21 Studio Tour production of The Bilingual Barber of Seville.

Designed to travel, Studio Tour productions are presented in schools and community venues across the state of Georgia each season. Educators are provided with comprehensive Study Guides, which feature an in-depth look at opera as well as cross-curricular activities corresponding to the Georgia Standards of Excellence.

We are excited to announce The Bilingual Barber of Seville returns after a sold-out run during the 2018-19 season! In this updated take on a classic, opera’s most famous barber, Figaro, plays the role of translator as Rossini’s sparkling, witty score takes center stage. Created by stage director Kristine McIntyre, the 45-minute adaptation is performed in Spanish and English and demonstrates the power of love to triumph over adversity of every kind.
