Opera Australia presents

The Barber of Seville
Gioachino Rossini

Almaviva loves Rosina, but her crusty old guardian, Dr Bartolo won’t let him anywhere near her. Sounds like a job for Figaro!

Opera Australia’s much-loved production transports the barber and his cronies to the natty 1920s, all blazers, boaters and Buster Keaton stunts. Meanwhile Rossini’s pacy music tells the madcap story with some of the world’s catchiest arias and ensembles.

Whether it is our hero’s showstopping call ‘Figaro! Figaro! Fiiiiigaro!’, or the vocal fireworks of ‘Una voce poco fa’ this music will have you singing in the shower for days.
