Sunday 23rd July 2017, 6.00pm

Opera in the Barn: The Barber of Seville

Winterbourne Medieval Barn

6-8pm

Tessitoura Opera Group present The Barber of Seville by Rossini.

Two hundred and one years old, but still as light and fresh as candy floss !

Rossini's take on the story by Pierre Beaumarchais revolving around Figaro. His opera is lively and vivacious, pouring onto the staves from his pen in under a month.
A recycled overture ?
A disastrous premier ?
A mob of thugs to cause trouble from the start ?
Is that the plot ?
No, a glimpse of the reality of the first production in Rome.

But, the opera is a triumph from the first beat of the baton to the last glittering notes, a musical delight with a plot as sticky as spun sugar !

All the elements are there; a noble count who loves a lady but wants her to love him for himself - not his money. A grumpy Dr, guardian to the lady, who desires her for a bride and for her dowry. A canny factotum or 'jack-of-all-trades' who is no fool. A dour hypocrite to help the Dr in his quest but who's easily bribed. And, the lady herself, a feisty ragazza trapped in the house with just a pen and paper for weapons !

Climb aboard the rollercoaster ride, pull faces in the hall of mirrors, grab a candy floss then take your seat. Enjoy !

The grounds will open from 4.30pm so why not bring a picnic to enjoy before the performance in the Barn.

Drinks will be available to purchase before the performance and during the interval.
