The Barber of Seville

17 - 24 April 2021 His Majesty's Theatre Buy tickets

Presented by West Australian Opera with Opera Queensland, Seattle Opera and New Zealand Opera.

A matchmaking barber with more skills than just cutting hair and pulling teeth.

A lovelorn Count, in disguise, pursuing love while a lecherous guardian pursues money. All focused on the lovely Rosina, a woman of unique intelligence, charm, and wit.

Be immersed in this sweet comedy, filled with humour and hilarity, love and trickery performed by an extraordinary cast of Australia’s best singers. This opera sets the first of the plays by French author Beaumarchais, the sequel to which we see with Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. 

Rossini’s comic masterpiece is brought to vibrant life in Lindy Hume’s energy filled, colourful production that will delight all the senses. New to Perth audiences, this production comes to you from Seattle Opera, NZ Opera and Opera Queensland.
