The running time for this production is approximately two hours and 50 minutes including one 20-minute intermission.
Lawrence Brownlee, whose recent Met performance was hailed as “brilliant” by The New York Times, shares the role of Count Almaviva with Juan Francisco Gatell. Bel canto specialist Silvia Tro Santafé and Operalia winner Ketevan Kemoklidze make their WNO debuts as the fiery Rosina. WNO favorite Simone Alberghini, last seen in La Fille du Régiment, shares the role of Rossini’s beloved Barber with Keith Phares. This WNO revival is directed by David Gately and conducted by Michele Mariotti and Joseph Mechavich.
