Barber of Seville by Rossini

24th February 2018 @ 19:30 - 22:30


Sung in English

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.

SWANSEA City Opera’s Barber of Seville is an absolute delight. If you want to give someone their first taste of opera, but find ticket prices and long journeys off putting, not to mention impenetrable plots or arty-farty reworking, then you couldn’t do better than to catch Swansea City Opera….the result was a theatre filled with laughter. Could Rossini have asked for more?-South Devon Journal

For my first opera it couldn’t have gone better — if all operas were as well delivered as this one was, I’d invest in a pair of opera glasses today! South Wales Evening Post

“…..bound to delight even the most reluctant of opera goers…. An absolute joy to watch!”
