Win tickets for The Barber of Seville at London King’s Head Theatre
Rossini's classic comedy has been transported to Jane Austen’s England, a world of rich, eligible bachelors, feisty heroines and snobbish relations familiar from much-loved BBC costume dramas. Obsequious Doctor Bartleby has designs on his ward Rosina, but she is far more interested in the attentions of a handsome stranger (actually a womanising Count in disguise). The whole affair is stage-managed by Figaro, the barber who knows everyone’s business and can fix your hair and love life with ease.
The Barber of Seville was OperaUpClose’s first production at the King’s Head Theatre, first opening in October 2010.
