Ulster Touring Opera are coming to Armagh’s Market Place Theatre with Rossini’s ‘The Barber Of Seville’ a tale of bribery, deception and disguise!
Figaro, town barber and jack-of-all-trades, is going to need all his wiles to outwit old Dr Bartolo and make sure true love wins the day.
Carrickfergus-born mezzo-soprano Sarah Richmond sings Rosina in an international cast featuring Thomas Chenhall as the industrious barber and rising star Jack Roberts as the lovestruck Count.
Following his success in UTO’s ‘A Night At The Opera’ tour, Belfast baritone Malachy Frame re-joins the company in the role of Basilio, and Spanish soprano Lorena Paz Nieto takes on the fiery role of Berta.
The production will be sung in English in Amanda Holden’s beloved translation. With vocal fireworks, scheming lovers and one very busy barber, Rossini’s comic opera is bursting with fun, mischief and the world’s best tunes.
‘The Barber Of Seville’ will be staged on Saturday 4 February at 8pm. Tickets are priced £17.50 and £15 (concession), and can be booked online at www.visitarmagh.com/marketplacetheatre or through the Box Office on 03300 561 025.
