Prom 14: Rossini – The Barber of Seville at the Royal Albert Hall on 25th July 2016

prom142016

Glyndebourne makes its annual visit to the Proms, bringing the ultimate comic opera. Rossini wrote The Barber of Seville 200 years ago, reportedly in a period of just three weeks, his head spinning with the joy and wit he discovered in the story of the wily hairdresser Figaro’s amorous antics. The result is an opera full of expectant fun but also oozing grace and beauty. Leading soprano Danielle de Niese stars as the young ward Rosina, eager to escape the clutches of the elderly Count Almaviva in a highlight of this summer’s Proms Rossini focus.
