Work introduction

One of the world’s most-performed operas has now also been made accessible for children and the whole family courtesy of Uwe Sochaczewsky: the story of Figaro, the smart, resourceful and charming Barber of Seville who uses his brilliant tricks to help his friend Almaviva to free his beloved Rosina, is not only the story that sets the scene for The Marriage of Figaro, but is also a milestone in operatic history. The young audience is given the gentlest of introductions to the world of opera while learning how a “complete work of art” comes into being and experiencing Rossini’s brilliant melodies and one of the most turbulent stories in operatic literature.
