The Barber of Seville

It was perfect weather, not too windy and cold, yet gently breezy to enjoy an outdoor performance. I arrived at Supreme Court Gardens at 6.30pm and there were already so many people taking good spots. People were enjoying talking, their picnics and the atmosphere. The event was well organised. I could see staff helping crowd and watching their safety. Susannah, the 7 news anchor host the event, started with sponsors' and the director's messages.

The messages were followed by the performance, started on time at 8.00pm. The opera, The Barber of Seville is waggish comedy. It started with group of men were singing with Lindoro. Lindoro is a rich, young man. He takes advice from a talented barber, Figaro, to meet his love, Rosina. Lindoro promises Figaro money to be a bridge between him and Rosina and Figaro suggests Lindoro pretend to be a poor to be loved as he is, not for his money by Rosina. There is an obstacle, Bartolo, an old doctor who wants to marry Rosina. Lindoro keeps disguise himself as different person and visits Rosina to trick Bartolo.

The aria was fast tempo and cheerful and I really enjoyed the characters' exaggerated expressions. I could see beads of sweat on actors' and actresses' faces on screen. They were passionate and powerful. I really appreciated their spectacular performance, the orchestra and all the sponsors for this great experience.
