The perfect show for newcomers to opera, The Barber of Savile Row is set in 1950s London, the era of Brylcreem and Teddy Boys.
Sung in English with dialogue instead of recitative, it's an opera makeover with a rock'n'roll twist!
A joyously 'retro' refashioning of a classic, the Barber of Savile Row is a battle of wits, witnesses and half-wits, bordering on hysteria. Figaro, the famous barber, plys his trade among the fashionable set and outwits all of them in the name of true love.
