When Rosina falls in love with a mysterious young suitorwho calls himself Lindoro, she must use all her cunning –and a little help from her local barber –to outwit her calculating guardian Dr Bartolo.Expect heart-melting serenades, ridiculous disguises and a fairytale ending waiting just out of reach. From the barber’s famous opening number ‘Largo al factotum,’ with its cry of ‘Figaro!Figaro!,’to Rosina’s feisty aria ‘Una voce poco fa,’ Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera is a riotously entertaining affair. Rafael Payare makes his Royal Opera House debut conducting an outstanding internationalcast that includes Andrzej Filończyk, Aigul Akhmetshina, Lawrence Brownleeand Bryn Terfel.

Running time: 3 hours and 45 minutes (including one interval)
