Rosina is the ward of Dr. In fear of the drunken man, Berta the housekeeper rushes to Bartolo for protection. Count Almaviva asks Figaro, a barber in Siviglia, to help with the success of his love. The marriage contract requires two witnesses; Figaro is one, but another is needed.
While Bartolo searches his cluttered desk for the official document which would prove his exemption, Almaviva whispers to Rosina that he is Lindoro in disguise, and passes a love-letter to her.
