Details

The Barber of Seville

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

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. 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.
