Jetske Mijnssen (director) & Hubert Zapiór (baritone)

Conversations | Rossini

Can The Barber of Seville still make us laugh today?

Dramaturg Hedda Høgåsen-Hallesby talks to director Jetske Mijnssen about getting The Barber of Seville right, now that she is staging Rossini's opera for the second time. Baritone Hubert Zapiór interrupts their discussion for an impromptu rendition of the inimitable 'Largo al factotum', before sitting down to discuss his role as a rather unconventional Figaro.

The full performance is no longer available but other material about the production can be found here.
