Barber of Seville – Rossini

What a contrast to our normal operas, which often bring a tear to the eye;  a treat brought to you LIVE from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

With vocal fireworks, scheming lovers and one very busy barber, Rossini’s comic opera is packed with fun and mischief.  When Rosina falls in love with a mysterious young suitor who calls himself Lindoro, she must use all her cunning –and a little help from her local barber –to outwit her calculating guardian Dr Bartolo. Expect heart-melting serenades, ridiculous disguises and a fairytale ending waiting just out of reach.

From the barber’s famous opening number ‘Largo al factotum,’ with its cry of ‘Figaro! Figaro!,’to Rosina’s feisty aria ‘Una voce poco fa,’ Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera is a riotously entertaining affair.  This entertaining romp is a great opportunity for those shy of opera to give it a go.

Rafael Payare makes his Royal  Opera House  debut conducting  an  outstanding  international cast  that includes  Andrzej Filończyk, Aigul Akhmetshina, Lawrence Brownlee and Bryn Terfel.
