Rossini’s The Barber of Seville
by The Garden Opera Company
Thursday 7th July Prior Park College, Bath
On Thursday 7th July, London based Garden Opera Company will be returning to the picturesque setting of Prior Park College to stage a very special performance of Rossini’s humorous masterpiece, in aid of Julian House.
Opulence : Wit : Humour
The Barber of Seville is Rossini’s best known work, and rightly so. The well-known hummable tunes along with the humorous plot have made this the most frequently performed opera of all time. Join us and Garden Opera for Rossini’s classic comedic opera. Upbeat, optimistic, and full of wit, you will be carried along by a whirlwind of crazy disguises, twists and turns and unlikely interventions. Set within a travelling circus, the many famous melodies will be sung in English by some of the profession’s finest singers who are accompanied by an acclaimed ensemble of chamber musicians.
Picnic in the picturesque grounds of Prior Park College before enjoying Garden Opera’s stunning rendition of this fun opera. This unique open air performance, against the stunning backdrop of the city of Bath, promises to be a highlight of the summer’s events calendar.
£38 per person (£20 per child – under 16 years old). All tickets are standard and non-refundable.
