Petite Opera Productions The Barber of Seville – the only production personally narrated by Rossini
With an original script and dialogue by Stage Director Michael Kotze, Petite Opera Productions The Barber of Seville was unique. Rossini himself pulled all of the strings to build this opera for audiences. The witty repartee added the crowning touch to an otherwise comical romp to create this unique production.
In this new production, featuring the ever-loving Figaro, exchanges the traditional recitatives with comic dialogue, and adds a new twist: the composer, Gioacchino Rossini, is a new character in the show. He inserts himself into the production and acts as a type of MC to add color commentary, introducing the scenes and characters to the audience.
