Welsh National Opera: The Barber of Seville


Donald Gordon Theatre

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic Welsh National Opera’s Autumn season at the Centre will no longer take place.

Tickets for Welsh National Opera’s Autumn 2021 Season, including Migrations, are expected to go on sale in spring 2021. Please see WNO’s website for the full details in their Tour Cancellation Statement.

Count Almaviva has fallen in love with Dr Bartolo’s ward Rosina, but the lecherous Bartolo has other ideas and plans to keep her for himself. Almaviva enlists the help of local barber, Figaro, to outwit his plan, and through a series of comical events and deception Figaro takes on the role of matchmaker. Will he save the day and true love prevail?

Welsh National Opera’s much-loved production of The Barber of Seville – set around a traditional Spanish piazza – partners wonderfully with Rossini’s witty and expressive melodies. With an unforgettable score including Figaro’s Aria, this is the perfect feel-good opera.

Sung in Italian, with English and Welsh surtitles.
