is delighted to return to the Barn Theatre to launch its national tour of this great comic opera, fizzing with musical brilliance, bold humour and famous tunes.

Join us to follow the escapades of the quick witted and irrepressible Figaro as he untangles the fortunes of a beautiful and feisty but imprisoned heiress, her greedy and lecherous guardian and the love-struck but always inventive Count Almaviva.

Given the 'Merry Opera treatment', a large shaving brush is really a chair, a giant hair tonic bottle provides Rosina's balcony and prison and a plethora of fashionable moustaches and stylish frocks invigorate Rossini's great masterpiece to delight both connoisseurs and opera newcomers.

Our talented cast includes singers who have worked with Scottish Opera, Garsington Opera, English Touring Opera, Opera North and Opera Holland Park.

Previous tours have all received 4 and 5 star reviews:

'This is opera for people who don't like opera, but more interestingly it's also opera for those that love it'
The New Statesman

'A great evening out, with a terrific cast of talented young singers'
David Mellor, Mail on Sunday

' a nice line in these slightly offbeat touring shows, performing them with charm, energy and wit'
Opera Now, 2014
