BEYOND HAIRCUTS AND BEARD TRIMS, THIS CANNY BARBER IS THE CITY%u2019S MATCHMAKING MAESTRO!
Almaviva is wealthy, stealthy and head over heels. Rosina is witty, pretty and equally smitten. She%u2019s also betrothed. They need a plan. Time to call on: Fi-ga-ro! Figaro! Figaro!
A must-see if you love: Downton Abbey, Sliding Doors, clever disguises gone wrong and a case of mistaken identities.
The stage is set for comic chaos. The Barber of Seville pops with lyrical acrobatics and irrepressibly funny characters. Rossini%u2019s most famous %u2018opera buffa%u2019 is a musical masterpiece with a storyline that would be equally at home in a Hollywood rom-com.
Opera Australia%u2019s finest voices and a live orchestra deliver a score that is instantly familiar from movies, cartoons and commercials. Delight in a riotous romp along the road to true love! This is opera at its light-hearted, effervescent best.
