The Barber of Seville

Author(s): Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini, after Pierre-Augustin Beaumarchais and a libretto attributed to Giuseppe Petrosellini
Company: English National Opera

Jonathan Miller’s production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, first staged in 1987 at the ENO, is back.

Set in eighteenth century Seville, Rossini’s comic opera is the first in Beaumarchais’s ‘Figaro trilogy’, making it a prequel to the story of Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro.

The opera sees dashing Count Almaviva attempt to win the beautiful Rosina from the clutches of her guardian, Dr Bartolo, enlisting the help of his barber Figaro and a series of cunning disguises along the way.
