The Barber of Seville has been transported to Jane Austen’s England, a world of eligible bachelors, feisty heroines and snobbish relations familiar from much-loved BBC costume dramas.

Obsequious Doctor Bartleby has designs on his ward Rosina, but she is far more interested in a handsome stranger (actually a womanising Count in disguise).   The whole affair is stage-managed by Figaro, the barber who knows everyone’s business and can fix your hair and love life with ease.

OperaUpClose burst onto the scene in 2009 with their fresh new version of La Bohème, which went on to win the 2011 Olivier Award for Best Opera. The Barber of Seville is directed by Robin Norton-Hale (director and translator of La Bohème) in her own English version, with live piano accompaniment.

This event is a Brewery fundraiser.

“Hilarious” The Stage

“Plucky and purposeful… a farcical romp” The Guardian

“Cosy, goofy fun” The Independent
