Following the huge success of this production in 2011, Swansea
City Opera has great pleasure in presenting this revival of
The Barber of Seville, Rossini's most famous
opera. SCO is known throughout the UK for its sparkling
performances of comic opera and this engaging production will be no
exception. Razor-sharp and full of twists and turns, The Barber
of Seville is an opera that is always cheerful and fun. Sung
in English the production is set in period Seville, with outrageous
18th century costumes that compliment the fizz and flare
of Rossini's musical genius.
A young Spanish nobleman, Count Almaviva, is in love with the
beautiful and rich Rosina, ward of the lecherous Doctor Bartolo,
who plans his own marriage to her. Along comes the meddling
Figaro, the town barber, and suddenly we have all the ingredients
for confusion and mayhem.
From Figaro's famous entrance aria 'Largo al factotum'
to the frenzy of the Act I finale, The Barber of Seville
makes for a rollicking evening's entertainment full of theatrical
wit and humour. Don't miss this ultimate feel-good opera in a
sparkling new translation by Bridgett Gill.
