Experience opera like you’ve never seen before, as Pop-up Opera take to the stage with a daringly unfussy production of Rossini’s sparkling comic masterpiece, laying bare the characters in all their glorious eccentricity.

Witness razor-sharp timing as the ever resourceful barber, Figaro, tries to help the young Count Almaviva win the hand of the beautiful Rosina, out of love instead of his wealth. Soon the pair set about to produce many disguises for the count, and thus the farce ensues…!

Rossini’s famous opera buffa is brought to life by the critically acclaimed Pop-Up Opera, sung in Italian with English captions.

Evening Standard 4*
“Buzzes with rude energy… skilfully negotiating Rossini’s outrageous vocalism”
