Victorian Opera presents
The Barber of Seville
By Gioachino Rossini
12 - 14 December 2019 | Melbourne Recital Centre
Rossini's most popular opera, which offers a delightful romp full of farcical frivolity.
Featuring some of opera's most recognisable music, this madcap masterpiece is a paean to impertinence that will make you beam with joy and grin with delight.
Count Almaviva is hopelessly in love with the beautiful, young Rosina but first he must prise her from the clutches of her guardian, the lecherous Doctor Bartolo. Lucky for them, the flamboyant and cunning town barber Figaro has a few tricks up his sleeve.
One of Italy's most renowned Rosinas, Chiara Amarù joins a stellar Australian cast in an essential, made-for-touring interpretation of this exuberant opera buffa, in the tradition of commedia dell'arte.
Don't miss Rossini at his best with this hilarious night at the opera.
