Barber of Seville
Thursday 15th July – Saturday 24th July
This production of Rossini’s “sizzling” comic opera will highlight the use of disguise as a means to find confidence, acceptance and status, and the clash of old-fashioned perceptions of femininity colliding with the modern view. The opera will be set in a psychological space, where time & locations ran rotate quickly from stifling comfortable confinement to a Barber’s shop where fresh ideas & invention proliferate.
The opera will be sung in Italian with specially adapted English sur-titles. 7 Artists will perform in 6 fully staged performances. Two pre-performance talks by the director will give an insight into the creation of the piece and contextual background.
