    Barber of Seville Tickets

    Jonathan Millier’s much-loved production of The Barber of Seville returns to the London Coliseum, thirty years since its incredible premiere. Rossini’s riotously funny tale of love, lechery and mistaken identity plays at the Coliseum for a limited run from this October.

    Thirty years after its memorable premier at the London Coliseum, Rossini’s comic masterpiece returns to the London stage. Directed once more by Jonathan Millier this boisterous farce is filled to the brim with touching and beautiful melodies.

    The Barber of Seville follows the scintillating schemes of Figaro as he gleefully assists Count Almaviva in levering the stunning Rosina away from her lustful guardian, Dr Bartolo. Here follows a fast-paced, farcical romp of love, lechery and mistaken identity, all set to Rossini’s outstanding score. The production marries the intricate visual comedy of Italian commedia dell’arte with the rug-pull antics of Whitehall farce.

    Morgan Pearse and Eleazar Rodriguez return to the roles of Figaro and Count Almaviva, following their celebrated performances in the production in 2015. Sarah Tynan, most recently seen in the title role of ENO’s Partenope, plays the coveted Rosina whilst the much-loved ENO artist Alan Opie sings Dr Bartolo.

    They are joined by a talented ensemble which includes Alastair Miles, Carole Wilson and Matthew Durkan. Conducting the piece is the renowned Hilary Griffiths who returns from a distinguished career on the continent to make her ENO debut.

    The revival director for the production will be Peter Relton, with design from Tanya McCallin and lighting design by Tom Mannings. Translation work for the piece will be carried out by Amanda Holden & Anthony Holden.

    With its soaring score and frivolous fun making The Barber of Seville is not one to miss, playing a limited run at the London Coliseum from the 5th to 30th October 2017.

    Best Seats

    SeatPlan Recommends: The center of the stalls is often the most advisable place to sit in the London Coliseum for those who wish to make the most of the incredible vocals in productions such as this. Great views can be obtained from the front of the circle also.

    Light opera. You will know many of the tunes! Figaro and Rosina were exceptional.
