  1. Il Barbiere di Siviglia, 'The Barber of Seville' - Gioachino Rossini

A classic comedy, razor-sharp and musically opulent, this is an opera that is always bright and fresh. ETO’s new production is set in period Seville, but with a modern splash of colour that matches the cheek of Beaumarchais’ original play and Rossini’s vocal and orchestral brilliance.

The ever resourceful barber, Figaro (Grant Doyle/Cozmin Sime), lends a hand to an ardent young count (tenor Nicholas Sharratt) in his courtship of an intelligent beauty (Kitty Whately, winner of the 2011 Kathleen Ferrier Award) who is being forced to marry her miserly guardian (Andrew Slater).

Though the weather – and the plotting – gets very stormy indeed, the youthful and cunning prevail; their victory is celebrated in music of pure joy, with ETO’s acclaimed orchestra conducted by Paul McGrath.

New production, sung in English
