One of the most beloved operatic comedies of all time, "The Barber of Seville" is presented in a production by Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher. An instant audience favorite at its 2006 Metropolitan Opera premiere, it was first seen on the big screen in March 2007 as part of the Met's Live in HD series. Superstar tenor Juan Diego Flórez as Count Almaviva is joined by American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as Rosina and Peter Mattei in the title role of the swaggering barber.
