Gioachino Rossini: The Barber of Seville


29th June 2024 (Rainday:30th June)

Margaret Island Theatre

We are convinced that Gioachino Rossini's The Barber of Seville is one of the most popular and most played pieces of comic opera repertoire. It should not be missing from the Hungarian State Opera's offer either. The director Csaba Káel places the work in a silent film setting, thus magnifying the humorous situations in his light and endlessly witty music. The direction also tries to musically dust off the performance traditions imposed on the piece over centuries and show the opera in its original freshness.
