The Barber of Seville
Aug 2, 2013
8pm Performance. The Logan Theatre Group will present The Barber of Seville at the outside on the grounds of the Hocking Hills Resort/Grouse Nest Restaurant. Chairs will be provided. Reservations are optional. The Barber of Seville, four-act farcical drama by Pierre-Augustin Beaumarchais, performed and published in 1775 as The Barber of Seville or, The Futile Precaution. It was the basis of the 1816 opera Il barbiere di Siviglia by Gioachino Rossini, with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini. Desperate love that is what all the characters of the play Barber Of Seville experience in one way or the other. It may be the notion of romantic love, the love and desire of fame and success and the love for money and wealth. Throughout the play it seems as if these characters are puppets in the hands of their own respective desires and passion. It is these desperate longings that govern the actions and thoughts of the characters and form the crux of the play. Barber of Seville can be considered a rare masterpiece as it presents the anxiousness of the characters to reach their goals through comic means, making the play attention-grabbing, compelling and entertaining in a carefree way.
