Glyndebourne's Barber of Seville

Glyndebourne's Barber of Seville Overview

IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA Rossini  
 
The battle of the sexes becomes a battle of wits in Rossini’s most popular comedy.
 
Clever Figaro, the famous Barber of Seville, has much to gain if he can win Count Almaviva his chosen bride. But the crafty would-be bride, Rosina, is already several steps ahead of him, plotting to escape her guardian Dr Bartolo, who has kept her captive for long enough as he wishes to marry her himself. 
 
Rossini’s most popular comedy comes roaring back in a production whose wit and playful energy springs directly from Rossini’s buoyant music. Director Annabel Arden creates a sultry, surreal and subtly Spanish world lightly touched by magic in which ‘she pulls off trick after trick with such speed and deftness that the eye is constantly delighted and dazzled’ (The Independent).
 
Cast includes: Jack Swanson (Count Almaviva), Tobias Greenhalgh (Figaro), Laura Verrecchia (Rosina), Marco Filippo Romano (Dr Bartolo), Janis Kelly (Berta), Anatoli Sivko (Basilio).
 
The performance lasts approximately 3 hours including one 20 minute interval.
 
There is also a free but ticketed pre-performance talk on Wednesday 8 November led by an opera expert giving you a free bite-sized introduction to the featured operas. Reserve your place at the talk when booking your opera tickets.
