Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!!


Last night I went with a friend who is visiting from Hong Kong (who also happens to be an extreme Opera fan and knitter), to go see Opera Australia's production of The Barber of Seville. Even if you aren't all that into operas, if you watched a lot of Bugs Bunny cartoons, you would recognise a lot of the music by Rossini.

The set design was quirky as was some of the costuming. However, I thought this fit with the comedic aspect of the opera very well. It would have been better if that idiotic couple sitting in front of us, came up for air and stopped pashing long enough for me to enjoy what I had paid for.
