Taliesin Live - Swansea City Opera: The Barber of Seville


Swansea City Opera

The Barber of Seville

by Rossini

Sung in English

Designed by Gary McCann

Directed by Brendan Wheatley and accompanied by the Swansea City Opera orchestra.

Swansea City Opera present a revival of their hugely successful 2011 production of The Barber of Seville, Rossini’s most famous opera - razor-sharp and full of twists and turns.

From Figaro’s famous entrance aria ‘Largo al factotum’ to the frenzy of the Act I finale, The Barber of Seville makes for a rollicking evening’s entertainment. Don’t miss this ultimate feel-good opera.

Swansea City opera is known across the UK for its high, quality and engaging performances of comic opera and this sparkling performance will be no exception. Sung in English the production is set in period Seville, with outrageous 18th century costumes that complement the fizz and flare of Rossini’s musical genius, it is perfect both for the established operagoer, and those seeking to engage with opera for the first time.

There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production at 6.15pm given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley.

“From the moment the curtain rose it was apparent this performance was going to be something special.”

“This sparkling production was carried off at a pace that never flagged.”
