Gioachino Rossini Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville)
Mischief and mayhem run riot in Rossini’s most popular comedy.
Figaro, the renowned Barber of Seville, uses every trick he can muster to outwit Dr Bartolo and ensure his master wins his chosen bride. He meets his match in the would-be-bride Rosina who has schemes of her own. Madcap disguises accompany twists and turns in a whirlwind plot, whilst Figaro’s cunning knows no bounds.
Directed by Annabel Arden with sparkling wit and playful energy springing directly from Rossini’s joyous music, and conducted by Enrique Mazzola, this new production heralds the welcome return of a masterpiece not seen at Glyndebourne for 33 years. International star and Glyndebourne favourite Danielle de Niese stars as Rosina.
Filmed live in Festival 2016. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
