ROSSINI | Il barbiere di Siviglia

Gioacchino Rossini's classic comic opera is about who will win the young Rosina. Will Count Almaviva succeed, or will she end up with the elderly Doctor Bartolo, who has locked her in? 

In this version, the story is told from Rosina's point of view. Director François De Carpentries and set designer Karine Van Hercke use her diary as a visual and conceptual starting point, in which the maiden's storm of feelings are broken down, reflected and expressed. We become part of a game that is entertaining and infectiously funny, but also vulnerable and confused: the game of a young woman who is on a journey of becoming.

Free introduction one hour before the performance
