Following on from our highly successful opera nights, we are pleased to announce that the leading touring company, Opera Brava, will be performing the Barber of Seville in our atmospheric surroundings complete with a small chamber orchestra. Imagine our wonderful fairy-lit venue being transformed into the setting for a balmy night in Seville, where some of the finest opera singers in the country, will be using a whole restaurant as their canvas to create the most magical of evenings. For anyone who loves opera or musical theatre, this is an evening not to be missed.
This fantastic production by Bronek Pomorski brings out the Champagne Fizz of the music and will capture your heart as Count Almaviva aided by his good friend Figaro manages to woo his love Rosina away from her wicked guardian Dr Bartolo. Thousands of people saw this work when it toured the country last year and many have asked to see it again.
Written in three weeks, Rossini’s masterpiece is one of the wittiest and most immediately appealing comic operas in the repertoire today and is as fresh to the ear now as when it first burst upon it’s Italian audiences in 1816. On first hearing, the utter joy of one melodic masterpiece flowing into the next is thrilling to any audience. As the plot unfolds and is dramatically told through Rossini’s brilliant musical structure, it helps us to understand, in part, the Barber’s special place in the history of opera.
Opera Brava in its 34th year is Britains leading touring opera company. Their production of The Barber of Seville is performed by professional and experienced national and international opera singers who have worked with major companies such as; English National Opera and Covent Garden.
The performance will be sung in English.
