Synopsis

ROSSINI

The Barber of Seville

Opera lets its hair down!

After having shone in the title role on the European stage, homegrown baritone Etienne Dupuis returns to give us all a shave! Setting the stage for this sparkling music imbued with humour and love is director Oriol Tomas, who brought us last year’s Die fledermaus.

SYNOPSIS

Beautiful Rosina is betrothed to the much older Bartolo. But young Almaviva, who is in love with her, swears to prevent the union from having to take place. Only one man can help them: the crafty Figaro!
