Thirty years after it first opened at the London Coliseum in November 1987, Jonathan Miller’s celebrated production of Rossini’s comic masterpiece The Barber of Seville returns to ENO for its thirteenth revival next month, running for 9 evening performances from 5 to 30 October, 2017.
The production stars Australian baritone Morgan Pearse in the title role, Mexican tenor Eleazar Rodríguez as Count Almaviva, English soprano Sarah Tynan as Rosina and English baritone, and ENO veteran, Alan Opie as Dr Bartolo. They are joined by British Bass Alastair Miles as Don Basilio, English mezzo-soprano Yvonne Howard as Berta and ENO Harewood Artist Matthew Durkan, who returns to sing Fiorello, the role with which he made his ENO debut in 2015.
British conductor Hilary Griffiths makes his ENO debut after a highly distinguished career on the continent and Peter Relton returns once again to direct. The designs are by Tanya McCallin and lighting design is by ENO Head of Production, Tom Mannings. The translation is by Amanda Holden and Anthony Holden.
