Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia, based on the first of the Beaumarchais ‘Figaro Trilogy’ of plays, has not been seen at Glyndebourne Festival since 1982.
This new production of Il barbiere di Siviglia will be directed by Annabel Arden and conducted by Enrique Mazzola, reuniting the creative team behind L’elisir d’amore, which received its premiere as part of Tour 2007.
The production stars two Glyndebourne favourites: the internationally acclaimed lyric soprano Danielle de Niese as Rosina and Italian buffo baritone Alessandro Corbelli as Dr Bartolo. The award-winning young German baritone Björn Bürger will make his Glyndebourne debut in the title role.
“a masterpiece not seen at Glyndebourne Festival for 34 years”
