Swansea City Opera: The Barber of Seville

Swansea City Opera: The Barber of Seville


Following the huge success of this production in 2011, Swansea City Opera has great pleasure in presenting this revival of The Barber of Seville, Rossini's most famous opera. SCO is known throughout the UK for its sparkling performances of comic opera and this engaging production will be no exception. Razor-sharp and full of twists and turns, The Barber of Seville is an opera that is always cheerful and fun. Sung in English the production is set in period Seville, with outrageous 18th century costumes that compliment the fizz and flare of Rossini's musical genius.

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 full of theatrical wit and humour. Don't miss this ultimate feel-good opera in a sparkling new translation by Bridgett Gill.
