The Barber of Seville


Prepare for laughs and glorious music in this original romantic comedy. Count Almaviva is set on marrying the lovely Rosina - but he wants to be sure she will marry him for love and not money.

Disguised as a poor student he serenades his lady, but the path to true love is blocked by Rosina’s grasping guardian. Can the hare-brained schemes of the ever resourceful barber, Figaro, ensure that it all ends happily?

Surrey Opera is proud to present a new and hugely entertaining production of Rossini’s most popular opera - The Barber of Seville. Conducted by Jonathan Butcher and directed by Leon Berger, with professional soloists and orchestra, this comic operatic masterpiece will appeal to a wide audience and leave you wanting more!
