The Barber of Seville (2010)

by Gioachino Antonio Rossini

 

International star Sally-Anne Russell stars as Rosina, with the dashing Phillip Calcagno as Figaro and Margaret Haggart as Berta; Operatunity Oz star Roy Best as Count Almaviva, popular baritone Ian Cousins as Dr Bartolo and David Gould as Basilio.

 

Rossini’s hilarious ’Barber Of Seville’ remains one of the most popular and entertaining of operas. Melbourne Opera’s production played to sell out houses in 2007 and returns due to popular demand with an absolutely first rate international cast.

 

Hugh Halliday directs his superb production with Anna Cordingley’s witty designs, and Greg Hocking conducts the Melbourne Opera Chorus and Orchestra.
