Il barbiere di Siviglia

The Barber of Seville is a tribute to zest for life and young love, in which the old and the self-righteous must lick their wounds.

Opera in two acts by Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868).
Libretto Cesare Sterbini, based on Pierre Augustin Caron Beaumarchais’ comedy.

Sung in Italian with Swedish surtitles.

Trailer, filmed for the 2013 production
“An extravagant Rossini production. Fast and light, comic and uproarious.”Göteborgs-Posten

The Göteborg Opera’s captivating production of Rossini’s comedic masterpiece went down a storm at its premiere in 2000. Since then, audiences have filled the auditorium time and again to see new artists revitalising all the delightful absurdities and virtuoso numbers. We're delighted to be putting on a fourth revival, featuring new singers in almost all the roles.

The South African baritone Luthando Qave, who has experienced major successes in Sweden and abroad, will be playing the canny Figaro. The pining Count Almaviva is performed by Ole Aleksander Bang, a sensational young tenor with the necessary virtuosity to shine in Rossini's operas. For the very first time in Gothenburg, Rosina's role is being performed as written, for a coloratura mezzo-soprano, by Ann-Kristin Jones. Markus Schwartz returns as the lecherous Bartholo and it will be a pure joy to see the wonderful bass Anders Lorentzson as the scheming music teacher, Don Basilio.
