Gioachino Rossini's opera buffa 'The Barber of Seville' comes to the stage in the 21/22 season, staged by Nikolaus Habjan and under the musical direction of Hélio Vida.
OperAvenir plays Rossini opera as puppet theater
Figaro is not only the best barber in town, but also a playmaker, schemer and jack-of-all-trades. With calculated chaos and many masquerades, he manages to free Rosina from the hands of her guardian Bartolo and bring her together with the handsome Count Almaviva. In director and puppeteer Nikolaus Habjan's production, elaborate folding-mouth puppets step into the spotlight. The characters develop a deep human psyche and become equal playing partners of the singers. The production celebrates the 15th anniversary of the opera studio OperAvenir.
