After leading the life of a playboy, Count Almaviva has found true love in Rosina. Although they have met only once and never spoken, it was love at first sight. From that day, Almaviva has attempted to get close to Rosina, but she is held prisoner by her father, Doctor Bartolo, who behaves as if he owns her … Then Figaro – the Barber of Seville – comes to the count’s assistance.

Il barbiere di Siviglia was first performed in 1816. Legend has it that Gioacchino Rossini wrote the score in only 19 days. The first night was a fiasco, success came later – today, this witty comedy is among the most performed operas in the world. In true carnival spirit, the Barber of Seville describes how youth and love conquer greed. Directed by the opera legend Knut Hendriksen.
