Gioachino Rossini's »Il barbiere di Siviglia« is one of the most famous and popular musical comedies in the world and has become a stable in Vienna State Opera’s programming. In its endeavour to open the opera house to all generations, the Vienna State Opera is bringing a child-friendly version of the classic to the stage for the first time. Taking about one hour (without an intermission), the story of the cunning and loudmouthed barber Figaro is told, who tries to trick the elderly Dr. Bartolo and bring the two lovers Almaviva and Rosina together. Austrian actor Andy Hallwaxx will narrate the abridged version with new interludes for director Grischa Asagaroff’s entertaining and colourful creation in the grand main building (the play will take place in front of the Iron Curtain). It is sung – in German – by members of the ensemble and members of the Opera Studio of the Vienna State Opera.
