Enjoy love and comedy at the “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” Opera

The witty story development and enjoyable, lyrical vocal performances make this opera Rossini’s most popular work. The exhilarating love story unfolds with the action of Figaro eventually making the match between the sheltered Rosina and Il Conte d’Almaviva. The production by Josef E. Köpplinger is set in Francoist Spain in the late 1960s. The comedy unfolds based on the delicate balance of power and vice, with the pop, kitsch mood of the 1960s expressed through colourful art.

Note: Sung in Italian with English and Japanese surtitles
