IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA (Opera New Hampshire)

IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA (Opera New Hampshire)

Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia

The Barber of Seville 

February 10, 2019 | 2:00 p.m.
Palace Theatre, Manchester, NH

TICKETS

Opera NH is pleased to bring Teatro Lirico D’Europa’s production of Rossini’s Barber of Seville to the Palace Theatre!

People who have never been to an opera or think they know nothing about it, know at least one aria: the "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's II BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA— The Barber of Seville. It's the ultimate tongue-twisting patter song (where would Gilbert & Sullivan be without it?) and it comes early in the opera: its the opera's centerpiece: "Figaro here! Figaro there! Figaro up! Figaro down!" Rossini's opera, with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini, was a musicalization of the first of three plays featuring the barber Figaro and his master, the Count Almaviva, by the 18th-century French playwright Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. Everyone wants a piece of this clever barber, and it's the nature of farcical hysteria that the hero has to be in more than one place at a time. The Barber of Seville may not have the deep humanity of Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, or Mozart's profound musicality, but it's a dazzling and hilarious concoction—one of the most delightful comic musicals the opera-going public ever took to its collective heart. By: Lloyd Schwartz, Classical Music Editor of the Boston Phoenix and classical music critic for NPR.

TEATRO LIRICO’S CLASSICAL BARBER A CUT ABOVE! “The touring company began its annual, much anticipated visit to town (Boston) Thursday night at the Cutler Majestic Theatre with a solid engaging performance of Rossini’s comedy THE BARBER OF SEVILLE. Baritone Vladimir Samsonov’s Figaro was generous of personality and winningly sturdy of voice. Bernardini relaxed into a fine performance as Almaviva. His voice gained in beauty and suppleness. Zhelezova’s finely modulated, silky smooth sound caressed the ear, and her portrayal of the feisty young woman (Rosina) was spot on. And Sarafov was the kind of Bartolo who really sings instead of bluffing his way through the part. As ever with Giorgio Lalov, the company’s artistic director, this was truly a production of Rossini’s opera, not a director’s idea of what that opera should be.”

THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE (NYGASP on tour)

Gilbert & Sullivan's

The Pirates of Penzance

With the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players & Orchestra

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2019

McCarter Theatre Center
Matthews Theatre
91 University Place, Princeton, NJ 08540

TICKETS

Doing one’s duty may be honorable, but becoming its slave, to the point of honoring an apprenticeship to a band of pirates, is a typical Gilbertian comment on excess. Frederic is the erstwhile apprentice of these sentimental pirates who, now that he is 21 years old, has decided to devote himself to the extermination of piracy – until he discovers, in another Gilbertian twist, that his 21st birthday won’t occur until the distant date of 1940 because he was born in leap year on Feb. 29th. Kissing romantic Mabel farewell, he must return to his former colleagues after disclosing that her father, Major-General Stanley, has lied to the Pirate King about being an orphan, the well known secret for any captive to obtain mercy. The pirates seek revenge for having been played, easily defeat a band of diffident and out-gunned policemen, and then yield “in Queen Victoria’s name” when it is revealed that they are all noblemen who have gone wrong.

“Opulent...colorful and inventive...beautifully crafted...The chorus of pirates, daughters and policemen sang and acted delightfully, and the orchestra, conducted by Mr. Bergeret, supported the cast with robust playing guaranteed to warm the most demanding Savoyard’s heart.

Everyone has pretended to be a pirate at some point. Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history. On the coast of Cornwall, a band of tenderhearted pirates celebrates the coming of age of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. Now, Frederic has vowed to devote his life to the extermination of piracy - until a ludicrous leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to the pirates for life! Throw in a bevy of beauties, a brash Pirate King, the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley and you’ve got what The New York Times calls “An endearing production with high musical standards and spirited performances."

The Prince has come of age. Time to marry — but which Princess shall he choose? From the bevy presented to him, where does true love come in? Add to that dilemma, all manner of devious advisors who wouldn’t mind sitting on his throne themselves. Then there’s that divine, delicious non-royal Enchantress. What’s a fellow to do? Here’s the all time most requested Herbert aria, “Art Is Calling For Me,” along with “The Land of My Own Romance,” “Rose, Lucky Rose,” not to mention “They All Look Good When They’re Far Away.” The New Victor Herbert Orchestra and VHRP LIVE! weave an evening of raucous intrigue and romantic love, sprinkled with a healthy dash of that new 1911 craze, “dance!”

Opera tour Teatro Lirico D’Europa returns to the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre with Giuseppe Verdi’s popular Italian opera “Rigoletto” on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now and available at the Kirby Center box office (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), online at kirbycenter.org, and by phone at 570-826-1100. All seats are just $10, plus applicable fees, thanks to underwriting from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.

Composed in 1851, “Rigoletto” is an intriguing study of the contrasts between good and evil. Destinies collide as the womanizing Duke of Mantua and his vengeful court jester Rigoletto weave a fascinating drama of seduction, betrayal, curses, and vendettas, ending with the tragic death of an innocent young woman.
