The Barber of Seville

Performed on December 30 and 31, 2017, in the Silva Concert Hall, Hult Center for the Performing Arts

“Eugene Opera enjoyed a triumphant return from its yearlong hiatus on Saturday afternoon with Gioachino Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. The performance highlighted the best of what Eugene Opera has to offer: great fun, crowd-pleasing music and an exciting mixture of local and national talent.”
—Alison Kaufman, The Register-Guard, January 2, 2018
