FREE ADMISSION

On 21 July the opera «Il Barbiere di Siviglia» - one of the most famous operas of the 19th century and the most famous one among Rossini’s works – will be performed at the Main Courtyard of the Catherine Palace in Tsarskoye Selo.

Based on the situation comedy of French playwright Beaumarchais, the Rossini’s masterpiece captivates by the dynamics of the play action and the brilliant wittiness of musical representation of its characters. Practically all of the opera numbers have become classical hits, often performed by singers in their solo concert programs. The public's love for the opera «Il Barbiere di Siviglia» which has not been languishing over more than two centuries makes it a true gift to the audience of the festival «All Together Opera». Harmonious is going to be a combination of the opera and the place where it will be staged: the baroque façade of the Catherine Palace in Tsarskoye Selo will remind you of the time at which the opera is represented as happening and will also be resonant with the character of the music by the clarity of proportions and festivity of the décor.

The opera will be staged by the theater director, Artistic Director of the «Talent and Success» Educational Foundation Hans-Joachim Frey (Austria). Conductor – Music Director of the «All Together Opera» Festival Fabio Mastrangelo. The St. Petersburg Northern Sinfonia Orchestra of the Music Hall Theatre. Production Designer – Julia Goltsova.

Leading parts will be performed by Tigry Bazhakin (Music Hall Theatre), Denis Begansky (Mariinsky Academy of Young Opera Singers), Savely Andreev (Music Hall Theatre). Evgeny Chernyadyev (Mariinsky Theatre) and others.
