The Barber of Seville
Saturday 21 April7.30pm

The Barber of Seville (Rossini)

Live on our stage Swansea City Opera present a revival of their hugely successful 2011 production of the Barber of Seville, Rossini’s  most famous opera - razor-sharp and full of twists and turns.

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, don’t miss this ultimate feel-good opera that is always cheerful and fun.

Designed by Gary McCann with costumes by Gabriella Ingram, directed by Brendan Wheatley and accompanied by the Swansea City Opera orchestra.

Swansea City opera is known across the UK for its high, quality and engaging performances of comic opera and this sparkling performance will be no exception. Sung in English the production is set in period Seville, with outrageous 18th century costumes that complement the fizz and flare of Rossini’s musical genius, it is perfect both for the established operagoer, and those seeking to engage with opera for the first time.

6.15pm - There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley
