Opera classic by Rossini

in a new take

 IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA  is back at the Royal Swedish Opera


One of the greatest opera classics of all time is back at the Royal Swedish Opera – in a new guise. Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Rossini’s masterpiece of comedy, is not only a work of sublime farce, but also a story of male friendship, class, the young generation versus the old and a young woman’s struggle for freedom. Inspired by commedia dell’arte and the idea of the house as a place charged with symbolic meaning, director Linus Fellbom, stage designer Julia Przedmojska and costume designer Lena Lindgren explore in depth one of our most beloved operas, vitalise it and make it sparkle.

In his version Linus Fellbom – known to the Royal Swedish Opera audience for his direction of the success Dracula – focuses on the fact that Rossini’s opera is based on the first volume of a trilogy of plays by the French 18th century playwright Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. First out is Il Barbiere di Siviglia followed next season by the sequel Le Nozze di Figaro. Luthando Qave sings the role of the scheming barber Figaro, Konu Kim appears as Count Almaviva and Rosina is portrayed by Dara Savinova.
