The Göteborg Opera’s captivating production of Rossini’s comedic masterpiece went down a storm at its premiere in 2000. Since then, audiences have filled the auditorium time and again to see new artists revitalising all the delightful absurdities and virtuoso numbers. We're delighted to be putting on a fourth revival, featuring new singers in almost all the roles.

The South African baritone Luthando Qave, who has experienced major successes in Sweden and abroad, will be playing the canny Figaro. The pining Count Almaviva is performed by Ole Aleksander Bang, a sensational young tenor with the necessary virtuosity to shine in Rossini's operas. For the very first time in Gothenburg, Rosina's role is being performed as written, for a coloratura mezzo-soprano, by Ann-Kristin Jones. Markus Schwartzreturns as the lecherous Bartholo and it will be a pure joy to see the wonderful bass Anders Lorentzson as the scheming music teacher, Don Basilio.

Sung in Italian with Swedish surtitles
