Filled with fun and farce, Jonathan Miller’s production of Rossini’s comedy returns to the London Coliseum.
Jonathan Miller’s much-loved production of The Barber of Seville returns to the London Coliseum and remains as side-splittingly funny as ever. For this revival, the talented Christopher Allen will conduct Rossini’s sparkling score, packed full of wit and playful tunes.
The Barber of Seville will run from 5 October 2017 until 30 October 2017 at the London Coliseum
The Barber of Seville will have you smiling from the moment it begins. Filled with fun and farce, this sunny adventure is set in an elegant vision of 18th-century Seville and follows the escapades of the barber Figaro as he assists Count Almaviva to prise the beautiful yet feisty Rosina away from her lecherous guardian Dr Bartolo.
Making his role debut as Dr Bartolo is Alan Opie, a long-standing and much-loved ENO artist. Former ENO Harewood Artist Sarah Tynan sings Rosina, while baritone Morgan Pearse and tenor Eleazar Rodriguez reprise their highly acclaimed roles as the barber Figaro and Count Almaviva respectively. British conductor Hilary Griffiths makes his ENO debut.
Conducted by Hilary Griffiths, directed by Jonathan Miller, revival director Peter Relton, with design by Tanya McCallin, lighting design by Tom Mannings and translation by Amanda Holden and Anthony Holden.
