THE BARBER OF SEVILLE

AN OPERA AUSTRALIA PRODUCTION
7 - 8 Sep 2022 (2 performances)
Wed 7 Sep 2022 7:30 pm
Thu 8 Sep 2022 7:30 pm
Theatre Royal Main Stage

Beyond haircuts and beard trims, this canny barber is the city’s matchmaking maestro! 

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

The stage is set for comic chaos. The Barber of Seville 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 orchestra deliver a score that is instantly familiar from movies, cartoons and commercials.

Delight in a riotous romp along the road to true love. This is opera at its light-hearted, effervescent best.

A must-see if you love Downton Abbey, Sliding Doors, clever disguises gone wrong and a case of mistaken identities.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles 

Performed with a live chamber orchestra 

Directed by: Priscilla Jackman
