Rossini’s beloved barber takes on the Opera House in new, festive attire.
The Golden Age of the silent movie in the 1910s and 1920s is the main source of inspiration for prizewinning theatre director Martin Lyngbo’s debut as opera director.
True to the feel of the silent movies, this production promises speed and chaos as the young count tries to capture the heart of his beloved Rosina and spirit her away from her over-ambitious guardian, Don Bartolo.
In Martin Lyngbo’s interpretation, Il barbiere di Siviglia becomes a tale of empathy and humanity in an age of tyranny, where everyone has their own agenda. There will be chaos and love, vengeance and celebration, pride and shame, feast and failure accompanied by laughter, smiles, anger and irritation.
This will be an opera event for the opera-beginner and for the well-travelled opera aficionado, who will be given the opportunity to see one of the great classics in new, festive attire.
Il barbiere di Siviglia is performed in Italian with Danish surtitles.
