Figaro in The Barber of Seville
Well, I was at quizbowl earlier today and one of the questions was "who is the beaumarchais character who, in the beginning of the opera, repeats his name over and over?" Well, of course, I immediately buzzed in and answered "Figaro" for 10 points. That made me even more interested in the character of Figaro, so idid some research. Figaro was the illegitimate son of Dr. Bartholo and his maid Marceline and he waskidnapped by gypsies who named him figaro. he was a servant in the house of almaviva which is how he became friendds with the count of almaviva. he worked with that almavivq family as a surgeon and the Barber pf Seville is a story of part of his life. Sory for my bad typing, it is the cast's fault.
