Barber of Seville
Figaro can’t help it — he causes madcap mayhem wherever he goes. In Houston Grand Opera’s The Barber of Seville, being presented at Miller Outdoor Theatre, he’s at it again, causing uproarious trouble as he sets out to help two young lovers, Rosina and Count Almaviva. There’s love, mistaken identity, a test of wills and drunken soldiers — everything a comedic opera needs. And more than that, there’s glorious singing by Mark Diamond as Figaro, Lauren Snouffer as Rosina and Brendan Tuohy as Count Almaviva. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. 6000 Hermann Park Drive.
