The Barber of Seville

19 - 20 Aug

Delight in a riotous romp along the road to true love!

By Rossini

Almaviva is wealthy, stealthy and head over heels. Rosina is witty, pretty and equally smitten. She’s also betrothed. They need a plan. Time to call on: Fi-ga-ro! Figaro! Figaro!

The stage is set for comic chaos. Our enterprising, matchmaking barber Figaro has wits and tricks as sharp as his scissors. It takes all of his clever disguises, subterfuge and scheming to wrangle a romantic encounter for the would-be lovers.

The Barber of Seville fizzes and pops with lyrical acrobatics and irrepressibly funny characters. Rossini’s most famous ‘opera buffa’ is a musical masterpiece with a storyline that would be equally at home in a Hollywood rom-com. Opera Australia’s finest voices and a live chamber orchestra deliver a score that is instantly familiar. This is opera at its light-hearted, effervescent best.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Performed with a Live Chamber Orchestra
