Gioachino Rossini’s Figaro may be one of the most famous characters in opera, yet this wily Spanish barber of Seville comes from the imagination of the French playwright Pierre-Augustin de Beaumarchais an equally fascinating character. Who is this Figaro, and what about the man who invented this endlessly resourceful, scheming barber? How does a story that follows an outrageously farcical plot manage to convey such a subversive and controversial message? What are we to make of Figaro, Rosina, Bartolo and Count Almaviva?
