McCaw Hall
By Gioachino Rossini
“Figaro, Figaro, Fi-ga-ro!” This October, get ready for whimsical disguises, good-natured trickery, and plenty of treats for eyes and ears alike! This giddy romp is full of zany schemes worthy of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Romance sparks between savvy Rosina and lovesick Count Almaviva, but she’s under the thumb of a ghastly guardian we love to hate. Enter fast-talking Figaro, who’s always ready to help young love carry the day.
Inspired by the chaotic and colorful film worlds of Wes Anderson and Pedro Almodóvar, this “riotously funny” (The Australian) new-to-Seattle production dazzles with vibrant sets and costumes in a comic, colorful celebration packed with shenanigans and bubbling over with joy. Rossini’s appealing score features an iconic, toe-tapping overture and familiar tunes throughout.
Featuring a special appearance by Juilliard-trained burlesque sensation Marc Kenison—known in Seattle and beyond for his glamourous, gender-bending performances as Waxie Moon—in the non-singing, highly physical role of Ambrogio.
