Le vieux et cupide docteur Bartholo, médecin de Séville, veut s'approprier la fortune de sa pupille Rosine.

Malgré toutes ses précautions, il n'a pu empêcher le jeune comte Almaviva de voir Rosine et de tomber amoureux d'elle. Lui aussi désire l'épouser. Sans se faire connaître, car il veut mettre à l'épreuve l'amour de la jeune fille sans l'influencer, le Comte a déjà tenté, sous le nom de Lindor, différents moyens d'approcher la pupille jalousement gardée et d'obtenir un signe d'elle. Le mariage d'Almaviva et de Rosine est finalement célébré. L'opéra est un chef-d'oeuvre de verve et de vie
