Rossini

The Barber of Seville

Bribery, deception and disguise. Figaro needs all his wiles to help the Count out-wit Dr Bartolo and ensure true love wins the day.

05 Oct - 30 Oct 2017

Jonathan Miller’s classic production of The Barber of Seville is a feast of frivolous fun. Enjoy Figaro’s mischievous escapades as he assists Count Almaviva in prising the beautiful Rosina away from her lecherous guardian, Dr Bartolo. Rossini’s comic masterpiece fizzes with memorable melodies in an entertaining production that unites the theatrical worlds of Italian commedia dell’arte and Whitehall farce. Making his role debut as Dr Bartolo is Alan Opie, a long-standing and much-loved ENO artist. Former ENO Harewood Artist Sarah Tynan sings Rosina, while baritone Morgan Pearse and tenor Eleazar Rodriguez reprise their highly acclaimed roles as the barber Figaro and Count Almaviva respectively. British conductor Hilary Griffiths makes his ENO debut.
