The Barber of Seville

Synopsis: An opera-singing Woody Woodpecker takes over a barbershop and harasses the customers.
7 min

Quietly, very quietly...

...without talking...

...everyone gather round me here

Quietly, very quietly,

we are here

Everything is silent

No one is coming...

...who could disturb our songs

Hey, Fiorello!

Here l am, my lord

And our friends?

They stand here ready

Very good, keep silent

Quietly, very quietly,

without talking

Quietly, very quietly,

without talking

Come over here

See, smiling in the heavens...

...the lovely dawn is breaking

And you have not yet risen.

How can you sleep so?

Arise, my sweet hope!

Come, my adored beauty!

Relieve the pain, Cupid...

...of the arrow

that has wounded me

What luck!

l now see that countenance dear

Mercy is granted

to this loving soul

Oh, moment of love!

Happy moment!

Oh, sweet contentment

that has no equal!

- Hey, Fiorello!

- My lord

Say, did you see her?

No, my lord

How vain is every hope!

My lord, day is breaking

What should l think?

What shall l do?

All is in vain, good people!

- My lord

- Come forward

l no longer need more music,

more songs

Good night, all of you.

There's nothing more for you to do

- Thank you for the honour, my lord

- Enough, don't talk, don't shout

Quiet! Curses on you!

Away from here, you rabble!

Everyone in the neighbourhood

will be wakened by this din

What a devilish uproar!

What a rage it puts me in!

lndiscreet fellows!

With their uproar they have almost

roused the whole neighbourhood

At last they are gone!

You can go, Fiorello

l will be over there

waiting for your orders

Who's this trouble-maker now?

l'll let him pass

Hidden under these arches

l'll see all l want

Day is already breaking

and there's no shame in love

Make way for the factotum

of the town

l must hurry to my shop,

for it's dawn already

What a good life, what pleasures

there are for a barber of quality!

Ah, bravo Figaro!

Most fortunate, indeed!

Ready for anything, night and day,

always on the go

No better fortune for a barber,

no life more noble

Razors, combs, lancets, scissors,

all ready at my command

Then there are perks

of the trade...

...with the young ladies,

with the young bloods

Everyone calls for me,

everyone wants me

Ladies, boys,

old men, maidens

Here a wig,

there a shave

Here a leech,

there a billet doux

Hey, Figaro!

Dear me, what a frenzy,

what a crowd!

One at a time,

for heaven's sake!

Figaro! Here l am

Hey, Figaro! Here l am

Figaro here, Figaro there

Figaro up, Figaro down

l am as quick as lightning,

l'm the factotum of the town

Ah, bravo Figaro!

Fortune will not let you down

What a good life!

Little rest, much amusement...

...and always l've some money,

the profits of my reputation

lt's like this:
without Figaro

no girl in Seville can marry

The widows come to me

for a husband

By wielding the comb by day,

by playing the guitar at night...

...l am well able

to please everyone fairly

What a life!

What a profession!

But l must hurry to the shop

lt is he, or do l deceive myself?

Who can this be?

lt is he, without doubt!

- Figaro!

- At your service

- Whom do l see? Your Excellency!

- Quiet! Be careful!

l am not known here,

nor do l want to be known

- l understand, l'll leave you

- No

- Can l help you?

- Stay here

Perhaps your arrival

is not inopportune

But, tell me, you rogue,

why do l find you here?

You're looking fat and round!

Misery, my lord!

- Scoundrel!

- Thanks

Do you still have discretion?


But what brings you to Seville?

l'll tell you

On the Prado l saw

a beautiful girl...

...daughter of some senile doctor

who settled here recently

l fell in love with her,
