Friday 14 September - "Sultry Spanish Nights

The Barber of Seville  (Rossini)

Enjoy a night of hilarity with Opera Bites and Rossini's The Barber of Seville. Count Almaviva has fallen in love with Rosina – he has come to Seville in disguise as the student Lindoro to win her hand and to see if she will love him for who he is and not his rank. First, however, he must get her away from the clutches of her protector Dr Bartolo who wants to marry her himself. Almaviva enlists the help of Figaro, the barber and general factotum, who is always ready (for a price) to come up with a brilliant idea. Rosina is indeed in love with Lindoro (although she has no idea who he really is) but Dr Bartolo’s accomplices, Berta and Don Basilio try their best to thwart the Count’s plans. Figaro makes the Count disguise himself as a soldier as a way of getting into Bartolo’s house but will Rosina want ‘Lindoro’ when she finds out about his deception...?
