About the event

More Details

Step into Rossini's vibrant world, a whirlwind of comedic chaos and romantic mischief performed on our main stage in front of the glorious façade of Waterperry House. In the bustling streets of Seville, the charming and quick-witted Figaro, barber extraordinaire, concocts a cunning plan to help his lovelorn friend, Count Almaviva, win the heart of the beautiful Rosina. With hilarious disguises and mischievous schemes, Figaro orchestrates a series of escapades to outwit Rosina's overbearing guardian, Dr. Bartolo, who has his own designs on marrying her for her wealth. As the plot twists and turns, audiences are treated to Rossini's lively melodies and effervescent arias that evoke laughter and joy.

Performed in English on the Main Stage in front of Waterperry House. ​English Translation by Christopher Cowell.
