The Barber of Seville
About The Barber of Seville
In this whimsical staging by Spanish theatre troupe Els Comediants, Barber's free-wheeling comedy is unleashed through exuberant carnival and circus touches, acrobatics and pantomime, and shadow play that mimics cinematic cutaways and montage.
This production showcases leading female artists who are shaking up the opera industry, including award-winning mezzo-soprano (and COC Ensemble Studio graduate) Emily D'Angelo as Rosina, as well as Speranza Scappucci, "one of classical music’s brightest stars" (Opera News), who conducts this piece.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
