The Barber of Seville (Rossini)

Opera Australia

Sydney Opera House > What's On > Box Office

The celebrity snipper meets the Keystone Cops - it's enough to make your hair curl!

The whole joyous point [of Il barbiere di Siviglia] is that all the characters are opportunist monsters; this is why, gazing into the proscenium mirror, we all love it so much.
