About the production

  • Run time: 3hrs 15min, 1 intermission
  • Sung in: ITALIAN
  • Subtitles: English, Italian and other languages
  • Opera house: Vienna State Opera


Despite a famously disastrous 1816 premiere, Rossini’s madcap comedy has become a favorite of audiences everywhere. Filled with instantly recognizable arias and ample opportunities for vocal virtuosity and hilarious hijinks, The Barbier always proves a delightful treat. This season at the the Vienna State Opera Vasilisa Berzhanskaya stars as the feisty Rosina, alongside Marco Caria as Figaro, the swaggering barber of Seville and Levy Sekgapane as Count Almaviva. Paolo Bordogna and Peter Kellner round out the cast as Dr. Bartolo and Don Basilio. Giacomo Sagripanti conducts.

Gioachino Rossini (1792–1868) was the most significant opera composer of his time. Astonishingly prolific, he composed more than 30 works over the course of just two decades, before retiring from opera composition by the age of 37. Many of his operas are staples of today’s repertoire.

Italian poet and librettist Cesare Sterbini (1784-1831) adapted the comedy Le Barbier de Séville by Pierre Beaumarchais (1732 –1799), one of the great self-made men of 18th-century Europe. Trained as a watchmaker, he rose through the ranks of French nobility to become a successful inventor, businessman, publisher and diplomat. Today Beaumarchais is best known, however, for his semi-autobiographical Figaro plays.
