Welsh National Opera: The Barber of Seville

9, 10, 29 + 30 September 2021

Donald Gordon Theatre

Mischievous trickery and action-packed fun.

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 English, with English and Welsh surtitles.

The performance on Thursday 30 September will be Audio Described.

START TIME: Wed - Fri, 7.15pm
