Set in an elegant comic-opera vision of 18th century Seville, Jonathan Miller’s Tiepolo-inspired staging of The Barber Of Seville brilliantly intercuts the traditions of the Italian commedia dell’arte and the Whitehall farce.

The Barber Of Seville charts Count Almaviva’s attempts to win Dr Bartolo’s beautiful ward Rosina – for love rather than money or status – by disguising himself as a poor student. But Bartolo wants to marry Rosina himself and keeps her virtually incarcerated in an attempt to make her his own.

The talented flautist-turned-conductor Jaime Martin makes his operatic debut with the production, bringing an authentic Hispanic touch to bear on the 25th anniversary revival.
