Welsh National Opera: The Barber of Seville

10 & 12 June 2020 - CANCELLED

Donald Gordon Theatre

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

We will be contacting ticket bookers from Monday 20 April with details of the options available to them.

Please bear with us and rest assured that we will be in touch with all ticket bookers in due course – you don’t need to do anything. We ask for your patience as we work through a very large number of ticket orders and emails at this time.


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.

Running time: Approximately 2 hours 50 minutes (including 1 interval)
