The witty story development and enjoyable, lyrical vocal performances make this opera ROSSINI's most popular work. The exhilarating love story unfolds with the action of Figaro eventually making the match between the sheltered Rosina and Il Conte d'Almaviva. The spectacular music includes the famous opening overture that bursts into a Rossini Crescendo, Figaro's "Largo al factotum" ("Make way for the handyman"), in which the barber goes on about his pride, and Rosina's cavatina about love, "Una voce poco fa" ("A voice a while back"), famous for coloraturas. The production by Josef E. KÖPPLINGER is set in Francoist Spain in the late 1960s. The comedy unfolds based on the delicate balance of power and vice, with the pop, kitsch mood of the 1960s expressed through colourful art.

For this performance, soprano WAKIZONO Aya takes on the familiar role of Rosina, having performed as Rosina at the Rossini Opera Festival in 2018, among her other performance throughout Italy. The role of Il Conte d'Almaviva will be played by René BARBERA, who dominates Bel Canto in theatres across the West. We have a full cast of Rossini vocalists who are making names for themselves at opera houses around the world. The production will be conducted by Antonello ALLEMANDI, who performed in "Turandot" which opened our 2008/2009 season.
