About the Event
The Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Gioachino Rossini's 'The Barber of Seville' in a production by Katharina Thalbach.
The tempestuous story of the love affair between Count Almaviva and Rosina, whose happy ending is only thanks to the wiles of Figaro, the barber, has been considered the archetypal work of opera buffa ever since its premiere. Rossini's score serves up a characteristically florid assortment of melodies and rousing, energetic ensembles and finales.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
