The 2005 production of Gioachino Rossini’s opera returns to the Royal Opera House for its fourth revival from the 13th September until the 11th October.
This latest revival will be conducted by Henrik Nánási, who returns to the Royal Opera House following his debut in 2013 conducting Turandot.
Count Almaviva arrives in Seville to search for the mysterious woman he met in Madrid. When he learns that she is Rosina, due to be married to her tyrannical guardian Bartolo, he enlists the help of the cunning barber Figaro to win her hand.
The role of Figaro will be shared between Italian baritone Vito Priante (who sings for all the September performances) and French baritone Florian Sempey, who will be making his debut with The Royal Opera. Daniela Mack is also making her Royal Opera debut as Rosina.
Meanwhile, the cast also includes: Mexican tenor Javier Camarena, Portuguese baritone José Fardilha, Italian bass Ferruccio Furlanetto, Italian bass Carlo Lepore, New Zealand soprano Madeleine Pierard and Hungarian baritone Gyula Nagy.
The production features set designs by Christian Fenouillat, costume design by Agostino Cavalca and lighting by Christophe Forey.
