The Royal Opera LIVE from The Royal Opera House
THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
Tickets: £15.50, Regal Film Society Film Society members/Friends, Students/ES40s £13, under 14s £10.
When Rosina falls in love with a mysterious young suitor who calls himself Lindoro, she must use all her cunning – and a little help from her local barber – to outwit her calculating guardian Dr Bartolo.
Expect heart-melting serenades, ridiculous disguises and a fairytale ending waiting just out of reach. From the barber’s famous opening number ‘Largo al factotum,’ with its cry of ‘Figaro! Figaro!,’ to Rosina’s feisty aria ‘Una voce poco fa,’ Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera is a riotously entertaining affair. Rafael Payare makes his Royal Opera House debut conducting an outstanding international cast that includes Andrzej Filo?czyk, Aigul Akhmetshina, Lawrence Brownlee and Bryn Terfel.
Conductor: Rafael Payare
Cast: Aigul Akhmetshina (Rosina), Andrzej Filonczyk (Figaro), Lawrence Brownlee (Count Almaviva), Bryn Terfel (Don Basilio), Fabio Capitanucci (Doctor Bartolo), Ailish Tynan (Berta), Josef Jeongmeen Ahn (Fiorello)
