Part of the 2019 Pivot Arts Festival

The Rosina Project is a contemporary adaptation of Rossini’s opera The Barber of Seville that mixes Hip-Hop MCs, opera singers, and street-dance artists with a live DJ and Beatboxer to perform an original female-driven story of empowerment and interracial friendship as an immersive house party.

Limited seating is available; Audience members are asked to stand if able.
