The Barber of Seville - Schedule, Program & Tickets

The Barber of Seville

Il barbiere di Siviglia is an opera by Gioachino Rossini with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini, based on the comedy of the same name by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais.

The action takes place in the 17th century and the halls of Palazzo Barbarigo-Minotto are an ideal stage, naturally adorned by the baroque furnishings.

The two acts are performed in three different salons: Portego (central salon), Sala Tiepolo and the bedroom with the alcove; during the interval you can enjoy the beauty of the halls overlooking the Grand Canal.

The architectural structure of the palace has numerous doors made of high-quality wood, allowing the artists to move freely in an extensive stage space, with the audience participating in one of Rossini's most amusing operas.

The rooms are lit with candles and the elegant costumes designed by Antony Knight are made of high quality fabrics and take inspiration from those of that era.

The hilarious direction and the virtuosity of the singing and the instruments offer the viewer an evening of tingly fun.
