An Opera in 2 Acts

A Production of Teatro dell’Opera di Roma

A love-struck aristocrat disguised as a penniless student. A beautiful young girl being pursued by an older man for her money. A cunning fixer who helps make love blossom — in exchange for a fee, of course. Rossini’s celebrated comic opera “The Barber of Seville” never fails to fizz, bubble and entertain. Along the way, it contains some of the best-known music ever-written, from the galloping overture to the famous refrain of “Figaro! Figaro!”. Opera Hong Kong gives audiences the opportunity to hear this timeless classic updated with modern style and glitz.
