The Barber of Seville
Students have the opportunity to attend the Dress Rehearsal of the NZ Opera production of The Barber of Seville, which plays at the Opera House on Wednesday 26 June at 6.30 pm. Other school aged family members and friends are also welcome to attend this performance. Tickets are $11.00.
Rossini's comic opera may be 200 years old, but Lindy Hume has sparked and sparkled it up for audiences of today, bent on bedazzlement.
The Australian director always comes up with a new angle on the familiar. This production, set against a patchwork of doors and balconies worthy of a frenetic Feydeau farce and staged with athletic tomfoolery that could rival the dining-room antics of Fawlty Towers, springs to hilarious life.
See Mrs Bisley as soon as possible for permission slips. Please give permission slips and ticket money into the college cashier's office by Friday 21 June or contact email@example.com for more info.
