Music: ENO The Barber of Seville

Join us in the Dress Circle to watch this classic, a great opera for opera lovers and for those early in their exploration of opera. Together we’ll head to 18th Century Spain and enjoy the witty fun and frivolity of the Barber of Seville.

We have reserved 10 tickets for members (and friends) to enjoy the show, all tickets must be booked with us by 22 February. 

 The Barber of Seville (in Italian Il barbiere di Siviglia) is an opera in four acts by Italian composer Gioachino Rossini. Based on a play called Le Barbier de Séville by French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais, this is the first of three plays about a character called Figaro.

The story follows the escapades of a barber, Figaro, as he assists Count Almaviva in prising the beautiful Rosina away from her lecherous guardian, Dr Bartolo.

Beaumarchais’ second play, Le Mariage de Figaro, was the inspiration for another opera – The Marriage of Figaro by Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, therefore, is considered a prequel to the story of Mozart’s opera, although it was composed 30 years later.

The Barber of Seville is playing at the London Coliseum from 14-29 February 2024.
