Back by popular demand – Scottish Opera’s sell-out Barber returns for a second run.
The vivacious and cheerful production is bright with the colours of southern Spain and packed with one fast-paced comic scene after another.
Count Almaviva has fallen in love with the young and beautiful Rosina but she is kept under lock and key by her guardian, Doctor Bartolo, who has it in mind to marry her himself. Figaro, the local barber and residend ‘fixer’, signs up to help the rescue mission and has soon invented an outrageously complicated scheme to smuggle Almaviva into Bartolo’s house, and to smuggle Rosina out, right under her guardian’s nose…
Glasgow-born Thomas Walker sings Count Almaviva, with Ville Rusanen as Figaro.
