The Barber of Seville


Almaviva is wealthy, stealthy, and head over heels. Rosina is witty, pretty and equally smitten. She’s also betrothed. They need a plan. Time to call on: Fi-ga-ro! Figaro! Figaro!

The stage is set for comic chaos. The Barber of Seville pops with lyrical acrobatics and irrepressibly funny characters. Rossini’s most famous ‘opera buffa’ is a musical masterpiece with a storyline that would be equally at home in a Hollywood rom-com.

Opera Australia’s finest voices and a live orchestra deliver a score that is instantly familiar from movies, cartoons and commercials.

Delight in a riotous romp along the road to true love! This is opera at its light-hearted, effervescent best.

A must-see if you love: Downton Abbey, Sliding Doors, clever disguises gone wrong and a case of mistaken identities.


Tickets available from the Capitol Theatre Tamworth


Sing on stage with members of Opera Australia

The Conservatorium is seeking singers aged 9 to 14 to join members of Opera Australia on stage as they perform The Barber of Seville as part of a children's chorus. This is an incredible opportunity for regional students to experience what it's like to be part of a professional touring production.


Rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 4-5 pm in the Chapel Theatre with Tammy Clark. Weekly rehearsals will commence Thursday, 5 May.

The cost is $100 for currently-enrolled students and $125 for new students.

Tammy will hold auditions for this children's chorus on Thursday, 28 April from 6:30 pm. You do not require an audition if you are a current Con vocal student or member of a Con choir, or if you performed in OA's production of Carmen last year.

If you would like to book an audition or register your interest to be part of this exciting children's chorus, phone the Office at (02) 6766 6911 or email admin[at]thecon[dot]com[dot]au by Thursday, 14 April.
