About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

Tessitoura will put on a special performance of Rossini's comic opera The Barber of Seville in support of Above & Beyond.

Two hundred and one years old, but still as light and fresh as candy floss! Rossini's take on the story by Pierre Beaumarchais revolving around Figaro. His opera is lively and vivacious, pouring onto the staves from his pen in under a month. A recycled overture? A disastrous premier? A mob of thugs to cause trouble from the start? Is that the plot? No, a glimpse of the reality of the first production in Rome.

But, the opera is a triumph from the first beat of the baton to the last glittering notes, a musical delight with a plot as sticky as spun sugar! All the elements are there; a noble count who loves a lady but wants her to love him for himself - not his money. A grumpy Dr, guardian to the lady, who desires her for a bride and for her dowry. A canny factotum or 'jack-of-all-trades' who is no fool. A dour hypocrite to help the Dr in his quest but who's easily bribed. And, the lady herself, a feisty ragazza trapped in the house with just a pen and paper for weapons!

Climb aboard the rollercoaster ride, pull faces in the hall of mirrors, grab a candy floss, then take your seat. Enjoy!

About Tessitoura (in support of Above & Beyond)

Tessitoura was founded in 2010 and has since gone from strength to strength. The idea was to create an opera experience for opera lovers and novices alike, performed in unusual venues by experienced performers and aspiring young singers, accompanied by a small chamber orchestra. Proceeds will go to Above & Beyond - a local charity that raises funds for all nine Bristol city centre hospitals. They support projects that make a real difference to patient care, going above and beyond what the NHS has the means to do. With the help of their wonderful supporters, they aim to make a real difference to the lives of patients, their families and the staff who treat them.
