Composer: Gioacchino Rossini
Stage Director: Chuck Hudson
Conductor: Emmanuel Plasson

Barber of Seville [was] a witty confection: Barber is a warhorse, but director Chuck Hudson gives it a new patina. His emphasis on physical busyness, including an amazing amount of high-spirited acrobatics, is a model true to the extravagant nature of the piece that also enhances the characters…This is one of Minnesota Opera’s most successful productions of many seasons.
