A typical example of the ‘opéra-buffe’ style of light, satirical opera, Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), composed by Rossini in 1816 and inspired by the eponymous play by Beaumarchais, continues to be performed in opera houses around the world. For this production at the Opera Bastille, stage director Damiano Michieletto has stepped up the pace of the legendary work with its many-layered and lively characters, and placed the action in a huge set. This magnificent production transports spectators straight into the streets of sunny Seville. Not to be missed!

Sung in Italian with surtitles in French and English.

Opéra National de Paris - Opéra Bastille

The Opéra Bastille was designed by Carlos Ott, a Canadian-Uruguayan architect, in November 1983 after an international competition in which 1,700 architects participated. It was later opened on 13 July 1989.
The architecture is characterized by the transparency of its facade and the use of the same materials on both the interior and the exterior of the building.
With its 2,700-seat auditorium with homogeneous acoustics, unique stage equipment, integrated workshops, costumes and accessories, and work and rehearsal rooms, the Opéra Bastille is a great contemporary theatre.
