Bribery, deception and disguise! Figaro, town barber and jack-of-all-trades, is going to need all his wiles to outwit old Dr Bartolo and make sure true love wins the day in Rossini’s masterpiece.

Carrickfergus-born mezzo-soprano Sarah Richmond sings Rosina in an international cast featuring Thomas Chenhall as the industrious barber and rising star Jack Roberts as the lovestruck Count. Following his success in our A Night at the Opera tour, Belfast baritone Malachy Frame rejoins UTO in the role of Basilio, and Spanish soprano Lorena Paz Nieto takes on the fiery role of Berta. The fully-staged production will be sung in English in Amanda Holden’s beloved translation. With vocal fireworks, scheming lovers and one very busy barber, Rossini’s comic opera is bursting with fun, mischief and the world’s best tunes.

“The whole evening was wonderful. The voices were superb. It was obvious that the company enjoyed what they were doing.”
“I enjoyed everything about tonight, if there were more events like this I would go.”
“All performers were so professional and animated in their performances. I loved everything.”
