Mill City Summer Opera found enough success last summer to announce a second production. The company will stage Rossin's "The Barber of Seville" in mid-July at the courtyard of the Mill City Museum.

David Lefkowich, who directed last year's "Pagliacci" at Mill City, will return and Brian DeMaris will conduct the orchestra.

Mill City sold out its run of "Pagliacci" in its inaugural season last year. The courtyard was arranged for about 300-400 seats. "The Barber of Seville" is Rossini's comedic masterpiece and one of the most popular opera buffa.

"Pagliacci" was a quick seller. Tickets for "Seville" go on sale May 20 at tickets.mnhs.org or 612-341-7582. That's May 20! So don't flood that website just yet.  The opera runs July 13, 15, 17, 19 and 21. Opening night is $150. Otherwise, $30-$75.
