Barefoot Opera bring their inventive, exuberant ensemble style to Rossini’s comic masterpiece, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, (The Barber of Seville). Sung in Italian with English surtitles, fully staged and with our famous ‘Barefoot Band’ led by Lesley Anne Sammons, our young singers will dazzle and delight you with their style and charisma. Figaro the barber is played by Oscar Castellino, who has just completed a full scholarship with the Welsh National Opera Academy and Rozanna Madylus alternates with Monique Klongtruadroke as lively, richly toned Rosinas. Rossini’s music has been compared to “the best champagne”, so come along to indulge in the bubbles and enjoy the comedy, as Rosina (spoiler alert) successfully manoeuvres her way out of her revolting guardian’s toils and into the arms of a gorgeous young Count. Directed by Jenny Miller, and on tour to Hastings, London, Oxford, Maidenhead and the Wooburn Arts Festival.
