Count Almaviva is once again up to his tricks! In Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, prequel to Figaro’s Wedding, this time his quest is to marry Rosina, in spite of her guardian Doctor Bartolo (who intended to marry her himself!). Figaro the barber, schemes with the Count in a plan of trickery and disguise, to wheedle his way into Bartolo’s house where he seduces the young heiress Rosina.
We welcome back our friends and characters from Figaro’s Wedding, Opera 2005’s debut production. Once again Artistic Director, Kevin Mallon conducts, with staging Director – Thomas de Mallet Burgess.
