About

In few words:

Drawing inspiration from Beaumarchais’ comedy, Rossini retains all its original spirit to create this lively opera buffa. A native of Venice, cradle of the commedia dell’arte, director Damiano Michieletto is acutely sensitive to the burlesque inherent in Rossini’s music. He transposes the action of this “useless precaution” into a modern-day Seville reminiscent of the films of Almodovar. The monumental building that is home to Bartolo, young Rosina’s guardian – around which flits Figaro, a law unto himself – allows the director to give free rein to his wildest imagination.
