The Barber of Seville at the London Colliseum is always a highlight of the West End Opera season!

Bribery, deception and disguise. Figaro needs all his wiles to help the Count out-wit Dr Bartolo and ensure true love wins the day.

Jonathan Miller’s classic production of The Barber of Seville is a feast of frivolous fun. Enjoy Figaro’s mischievous escapades as he assists Count Almaviva in prising the beautiful Rosina away from her lecherous guardian, Dr Bartolo.

Rossini’s comic masterpiece fizzes with memorable melodies in an entertaining production that unites the theatrical worlds of Italian commedia dell’arte and Whitehall farce. Making his role debut as Dr Bartolo is Alan Opie, a long-standing and much-loved ENO artist. Former ENO Harewood Artist Sarah Tynan sings Rosina, while baritone Morgan Pearse and tenor Eleazar Rodriguez reprise their highly acclaimed roles as the barber Figaro and Count Almaviva respectively. British conductor Hilary Griffiths makes his ENO debut.

Christine Peyrot1st November

We were delighted with the seats especially as we wanted 4 seats together. We thoroughly enjoyed the show, it was really great, the music, the sound, stage set, everything. It was a little hot in the theatre during the evening but despite that we had a great night!

Ron Waller31st October

A very imaginative production Rossini's operatic challenge is a good choice for the ENO. Soloists were strong and their slapstick humour brought out many of the more subtle characterisations of this opera. The Coliseum, surrounded as it is by reasonably-priced restaurants, is an ideal venue for opera lovers and more reasonably priced. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Alberto Migliori19th October

The performance was amazing, shame for the very uncomfortable seats tho

One of the best performances I have ever seen! Figaro must be knighted!

Fantastic show. The actors had perfect comic timing. Great fun!

Angela J Emmott26th October

A beautiful performance with plenty of mirth. We just could not follow the words in the last sequence of the first act, but otherwise the diction was excellent and the voices superb.

john Harrison26th October

Highly entertaining. Also a great piece to introduce the next generation to the opera.

Brian Fowler25th October

A delightfully engaging and enjoyable performance of Barber, timing impeccable, Rosina was wonderful and the entire cast blended & sung so well it was a joy to be there.
