Il barbiere di Siviglia

Comic melodrama in two acts
Libretto by Cesare Sterbini

The third title is Il barbiere di Siviglia, a comic masterpiece by the most famous and celebrated composer from the Marche region, Gioachino Rossini. It will be staged at the Sferisterio arena, after many years of absence. This new production, entrusted to Daniele Menghini (set design by Davide Signorini, costume design by Nika Campisi, and lighting by Simone de Angelis), was chosen through an international competition for direction, scenes and costumes reserved for artists who are under 35, in collaboration with Opera Europa and Rossini Opera Festival (participants presented their project in 2020). On the podium: the young and talented Alessandro Bonato. The cast of this new production of Barbiere di Siviglia set in a fictional world – a television studio or a production house for TV formats for the general public, ‘a factory of fiction’ – includes Ruzil Gatin (Count of Almaviva), Roberto De Candia (Bartolo), Serena Malfi (Rosina), Alessandro Luongo (Figaro), and Andrea Concetti (Basilio).
