The Barber of Seville Film Poster


Mischief and mayhem run riot in Rossini’s most popular comedy. Figaro, the renowned Barber of Seville, uses every trick he can muster to outwit Dr Bartolo and ensure his master wins his chosen bride. He meets his match in the would-be-bride Rosina, who has schemes of her own. Madcap disguises accompany twists and turns in a whirlwind plot, while Figaro’s cunning knows no bounds. Conducted by Enrique Mazzola and directed by Annabel Arden with sparkling wit and playful energy springing directly from Rossini’s joyous music, this new production heralds the welcome return of a masterpiece not seen at Glyndebourne Festival since 1982. International star and Glyndebourne favourite Danielle de Niese stars as Rosina. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
