Swansea City Opera make a welcome return with a production of Rossini’s ever-popular and most famous comic opera, The Barber of Seville, as part of their national tour. Known for their sparkling performances of comic opera, the Barber will be no exception.
Set in Seville in the late 18th Century, 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…but will there be a happy ending?
Beautifully staged in English with charming traditional 18th century costume and performed by some of the finest singers and orchestral players in the country, The Barber of Seville makes for a rollicking evening’s entertainment, full of theatrical wit and humour and a feast for the eyes and ears.
