    Austin Opera: The Barber of Seville

    Rossini’s witty tale of bribery, deception, disguise, and (of course) true love drops us into a forbidden love story between the rich-nobleman-disguised-as-poor-student Count Almaviva (Jack Swanson) and the vivacious-but-orphaned Rosina (Austin native soprano Lauren Snouffer) as they try to escape from the grasping hands of the latter's guardian. With baritone Emmett O’Hanlon as the deviously charming barber, Figaro, and the whole glorious spectacle conducted by Stephanie Rhodes Russell and directed by Gregory Boyle.

    Austin Studio Tour

    The Austin Studio Tour, produced by Big Medium, is a free, self-guided art event that combines the West Austin Studio Tour and East Austin Studio Tour to provide opportunities for artists all over Austin to connect with each other and showcase current work – and for the public to experience the cultural vibrancy of our city from, you might say, the inside out. This year's Tour happens over three weekends and will be divided into two regions, west of IH-35 and east of IH-35, allowing citizens to choose weekends and regions and plan accordingly. We've got a fine mess o' recommendations coming up for you next issue, but right now check out the excellent website these wizards have conjured for your delight and convenience.
