The Barber of Seville

A love-sick Count, a feisty young woman, and a barber with a cunning plan.

Rossini’s comic masterpiece The Barber of Seville is a giddy romp along the path to true love, by way of serenades, ridiculous disguises, and trickery. If love makes a fool of us all, then this popular opera-buffa is one of the greats. Imprisoned by her ghastly guardian, the savvy Rosina is no match for lock and key, especially when the fast-talking, flashy Figaro turns up and promises to help her find the man of her dreams.

This vivid and vivacious production features a dazzling collection of Australia’s opera stars, including Morgan Pearse as Figaro, John Longmuir as the Count, and introducing Natasha Wilson as Rosina.
