Figaro gets his own ice cream flavor

Opera Grand Rapids teams up with Love’s Ice Cream (yet again) to unveil a new ice cream flavor in celebration of Opera Grand Rapids’ upcoming production of The Barber of Seville.

Inspired by The Barber of Seville’s title character–the ever-wacky, madcap barber, Figaro–the flavor features Madcap coffee ice cream swirled with a Seville orange and Fig jam. Meet the Madcap Figaro!, available for a limited time only at the Love’s Ice Cream store in the Downtown Market. The specialty flavor is available from now until May 13. Don’t miss your chance to get a taste!
