About this event

Rossini’s celebrated opera ‘buffa’ is a perfect marriage of wit, energy and musical invention. When Count Almaviva falls in love with Rosina, he enlists the help of his Mr-Fix-It barber, the irrepressible Figaro, to help him outwit Rosina’s guardian Bartolo. But Bartolo plans to marry Rosina himself, and a comic and fast-paced battle of wills ensues. Rossini’s masterpiece was completed, legend has it, in just 13 days. His score fizzes with virtuosic brilliance , from the stunning, ubiquitously known Overture to the bravura solo arias – including the immortal ‘Una Voce Poco Fa’ and Figaro’s ‘Largo Al Factotum’ – while breathtaking, intricate ensemble singing weaves together the strands of the comic tale. In this revival of Annabel Arden’s 2016 production for Glyndebourne, Danielle de Niese stars as Rosina. Opera’s greatest comedy, filled with its greatest hits. A treat for all.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
