A love-sick Count, a feisty young woman, and a barber with a cunning plan. Rossini’s comic masterpiece The Barber of Seville is a giddy romp along the path to true love, by way of serenades, ridiculous disguises and trickery. If love makes a fool of us all, then this popular opera buffa is one of the greats. Imprisoned by her wicked guardian, the savvy Rosina is no match for lock and key, especially when the fast-talking, flashy Figaro turns up and promises to help her find the man of her dreams. This vivid and vivacious production features a dazzling collection of Australia’s opera stars.

A Co-Production between Opera Queensland, Seattle Opera and New Zealand Opera.

You'll see Kewpie dolls all over the set of Summer of the Seventeenth Doll.

Every layoff season, Roo brings Olive a kewpie doll, holding onto the dolls keeps Olive from having to face the reality that the layoff seasons of her youth are over.

Part of the thrill of Seventeenth Doll, like any great opera, is the ensemble writing for the singers - Anthony Hunt Delves into the ensemble writing in Summer of the Seventeenth Doll by Richard Mills.

Summer of the Seventeenth Doll comes to Her Majesty's Theatre from 14-20 November: stateopera.com.au/productions/summer-of-the-seventeenth-doll/
