Fun with the Barber of Seville
15 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love The Barber of Seville, and I have been impressed with a lot of Glyndebourne productions. This is no exception, in fact it was wonderful and great fun. The story with the many comic coincidences is easy to follow and ceaselessly entertaining, and the music is sublime, beautifully played, conducted and sung. The costumes and sets are excellent, the video directing interesting and the staging particularly in the end of act 1 is fun without being too cluttered. The performances are terrific, my favourites being Maria Ewing as Rosina and John Rawnsley as Figaro. But that is not to dispute Max Rene Cosotti as a dashing and lovable Almaviva, Claudio Desderi as a funny and grotesque Bartolo and Ferruccio Furlanetto as a well sung and decently acted Basilio. Overall, a lot of fun. 9/10 Bethany Cox
