English National Opera (ENO) Screening of Rossini’s THE BARBER OF SEVILLE.
★★★★ “Great fun and highly recommended” - The Guardian

When grumpy Bartolo stands between his beautiful young ward Rosina and her lover Count Almaviva, there's only one person to call on: local barber and man-with-a-plan Figaro. But with Rosina kept under lock and key, can Figaro fix it for them? It could be a close shave.

Set in an elegant vision of 18th-century Seville, Jonathan Miller’s much-loved production is as side-splittingly funny as ever. For this revival, the talented Christopher Allen will conduct Rossini’s sparkling score, packed full of wit and playful tunes.

ENO performances are captured live from the London Coliseum and are shot on multi-cam in stunning cinematic HD. ENO’s operas are all performed in the English language. A superb cast includes ENO favourite Andrew Shore (The Pirates of Penzance, The Mastersingers of Nuremberg) in one of his signature roles as Dr Bartolo, former ENO Harewood Artist Kathryn Rudge as Rosina, and rising baritone Morgan Pearse as the barber Figaro.
