This widely popular rendition of Rossini’s classic comic opera Il Barbiere di Siviglia returns to the Met this year for a month-long run. Set just before the French Revolution the performance’s plot deals with employer-employee tensions—a theme still relevant in present day. Sung in Italian, with English titles, the show has two acts and one intermission for a total run time of about three hours. First premiered in Rome in 1816, the show’s wit and melodic intrigue have withstood the test of time for two centuries and it is still a favorite among the opera crowd today. Buy your tickets here starting at just $25 a piece.
