In 2013, the students of the Verbier Festival Academy have trained to perform this concert version of The Barber of Seville, one of the repertoire's greatest hits, a very demanding score for the singers and the musicians...
At dawn Lindoro and a band of street musicians are serenading the window of Rosina. Figaro, the Barber of Seville arrives and recognizes his former master in disguise: Count Almaviva. Almaviva fell in love with Rosina and explains he wants to seduce her with his qualities and not with his money. The cunning Figaro is here to help Count Almaviva get inside the doctor's house who keeps Rosina locked in, in order to marry her.
