The Barber of Seville
12th March 2016 - 13th March 2016
with l’Opéra Nomade
An ode to freedom and to life!
12 March | 20h 30
Sunday, March 13 | 16h 30
A new, modern version of the Barber of Seville on the bicentennial of its creation. A fun farce with serenades, duets and ensembles in this comic opera sung by the cast of the Opéra Nomade!
For this latest creation, the ‘centre lyrique Clermont-Auvergne’ brings Rossini’s lyrical opera forward into the 50’s. An amorous old man wants to marry his ward, but a younger man is having none of it!
A personal touch to a great classic, with plenty of vocal leeway for the players, whilst respecting the original opera.
Watch out for leading lady Elsa Dreisig, young Franco Danish soprano.
