Live opera coming to cinemas in Wisbech
Live comedy opera is coming to Wisbech cinemas, with a showing of the Royal Opera House's performance of The Barber of Seville.
The live performance will be beamed to the Luxe on Alexandra Road and The Light on Cromwell Road on Wednesday, February 15 at 7pm.
The showing gives opera fans the chance to see a top notch performance without leaving the Fens, and is sung in Italian with English subtitles.
When Rosina falls in love with mysterious young suitor Lindoro, she must use all her cunning – and a little help from her local barber – to outwit her calculating guardian Dr Bartolo.
Expect heart-melting serenades, ridiculous disguises and a fairytale ending waiting just out of reach.
From the barber's opening number 'Largo al factotum,' with its cry of 'Figaro!,' to Rosina's feisty aria 'Una voce poco fa,' Gioachino Rossini's comic opera is a riotously entertaining affair.
Rafael Payare makes his House debut, and joins Christopher Willis in conducting a cast that includes Andrzej Filończyk, Aigul Akhmetshina, Laurence Brownlee, Konu Kim and Bryn Terfel. The performance is rated 12A and lasts three hours and 45 minutes, with an interval included.
