English Touring Opera's spring season tour of The Barber of Seville and Eugene Onegin is coming to the Everyman.
Set in 17th century Seville, The Barber of Seville tells the story of Rosina and Count Almaviva, a pair of young lovers who, with the help of Figaro, outwit Rosina's guardian - Doctor Bartolo. Directed by Thomas Guthrie and conducted by Paul McGrath, ETO's new production of The Barber of Seville features Kathleen Ferrier Award Winner, Kitty Whately in the role of Rosina, alongside Nicholas Sharratt as Count Almaviva.
Eugene Onegin is a romantic opera based on a story by Russian author Alexander Pushkin. Set in 19th century St. Petersbur, the opera features grand ballroom scenes and a dramatic duel to the death. ETO's Music Director, Michael Rosewell conducts a revival of James Conway's acclaimed 2007 production. Emerging star Nicholas Lester takes the title role of Onegin, and joining him, in the role of Tatyana, is Welsh soprano Sarah-Jane Davies, who represented Wales at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World.
Both operas will be performed in English, and surtitles in English will be displayed for the performance of Eugene Onegin on 2 May and The Barber of Seville on 3 May.
