Figaro the Barber!

Commissioned by Perth Repertory Theatre. Premiere 1991. Director Joan Knight.

The intention was to work from the original Beaumarchais play, Le Barbier de Saville, translated and adapted with a more traditional Spanish slant to Rossini’s music; a kind of folk-opera. In the event, the theatre’s resources proved insufficient and Rossini’s music was simply reproduced, in miniature, on a piano.
