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 Kate Lindsey stars as the feisty Rosina, alongside Boris Pinkhasovich as Figaro, the swaggering barber of Seville and Cyrille Dubois as Count Almaviva . Paolo Rumetz and Michele Pertusi round out the cast as Dr. Bartolo and Don Basilio. Stefano Montanari conducts.

After booking online, you will receive two emails: a Booking Request email will arrive immediately and a second, separate email with your Booking Confirmation will arrive within 48 hours.

We recommend arriving at least 30 min prior to curtain time. Please bring your printed Booking Confirmation to the Evening Box Office in the foyer of the Opera House. The evening box office opens one hour before curtain.

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.
