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 wicked 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.

A Co-Production between Opera Queensland, Seattle Opera and New Zealand Opera.
