Il barbiere di Siviglia. A young English aristocrat arrives in Seville to woo the lovely Rosina. However, she is being pursued by an unscrupulous older man, Bartolo and it is only with the ingenious help of the quick thinking barber, Figaro, that the situation is rescued. A new English verison by Robin Norton-Hale with piano accompaniment. 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.


Lawrence Olsworth-Peter (Marquis of Bath), Tom Bullard (Figaro), Elinor Jane Moran (Rosina), Dickon Gough (Dr Bartleby), Ian Wilson-Pope (Mr Basil), Louise Lloyd (Bertha)
