Succumb to the wit of Figaro, the most famous barber of all times!
Italian original version with Czech and English surtitles
Figaro is the most famous barber of all time, and his wit, as sharp as his razor, helps Count Almaviva to win his beloved Rosina. Love, guile and intrigue, these are the ingredients of Rossini’s superlative comic opera. The sparkling charm of the music, the virtuoso parts of the heroes as well as the rapid tempo of the action, have secured Il barbiere di Siviglia a permanent position in the global repertoire.
The author of the comedy Le Barbier de Seville, on which the libretto is based, the celebrated French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais, wrote that he above all wanted “to succumb to his merry temper and return the original joyful mood to theatre”. Rossini’s opera directly links up to this intention, and the same is the objective of the State Opera production, which was also received with great enthusiasm when performed in Salzburg in October 2007.
