The Barber of Seville
2016 is the 200th anniversary of the first performance of The Barber of Seville and this delicious dose of comedy and effervescent music, is the perfect way to say – Happy Birthday Figaro!
Dashing Count Almaviva has lost his heart to the sassy young maiden Rosina. But Rosina’s guardian is determined to marry her himself until Figaro – king of charisma and silken style – leads
the charge to unite the young lovers through a series of hilarious, ‘fool proof’ schemes. Will it all add up to a Spanish mission impossible? Get ready for a rollicking fiesta of sunny madness as Rossini’s celebrated, razor-sharp, musical wit is brought to life by director Lindy Hume and a fabulous cast of Queensland artists including former OperaQ Young Artist Brett Carter and audience favourites Andrew Collis, Virgilio Marino, Jaewoo Kim, Shaun Brown and Emily Burke, supported by musicians from the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. The role of Rosina will be shared by two bright OperaQ rising stars, Monique Latemore and Katie Stenzel.
Sung in Italian with projected English translations. Conductor Roland Peelman, Director Lindy Hume, Set and Costume Designer Tracy Grant Lord, Lighting Designer Matthew Marshall, The Opera Queensland Gold Coast Community Chorus, Queensland Symphony Orchestra Ensemble.
