THE BARBER OF SEVILLE

PAST EVENT
PLAYHOUSE, QPAC

2016 is the 200th anniversary of the first performance of The Barber of Seville and this delicious dose of comedy and effervescent music, up close in the Playhouse, is the perfect way to say – Happy Birthday Figaro!

Dashing Count Almaviva has lost his heart to the sassy young maiden Rosina. But Rosina’s guardian is determined to marry her himself until Figaro – king of charisma and silken style – leads the charge to unite the young lovers through a series of hilarious, “fool proof” schemes. Will it all add up to a Spanish mission impossible?

Get ready for a rollicking fiesta of sunny Seville madness as Rossini’s celebrated, razor-sharp, musical wit is brought to life by director Lindy Hume and a fabulous cast of Queensland artists including former OperaQ Young Artist Brett Carter and audience favourites Andrew Collis, Virgilio Marino, Shaun Brown, Emily Burke and David Hibbard. The role of Rosina will be shared by two bright OperaQ rising stars, Monique Latemore and Katie Stenzel.

The Barber of Seville is a co-production of Opera Queensland, Seattle Opera and New Zealand Opera.

Running Time: Approximately 2 hours 45 minutes in duration including a 20 minute interval.
Sung in Italian with projected English translations.
