Event details
 

Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) is an opera by Gioacchino Rossini, with its libretto by Cesare Sterbini, based on a play with the same name by Pierre­Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. The opera is set in the 17th century and therefore the halls of Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto are the ideal setting, embellished and complemented by its magnificent Baroque furnishings.
The two acts are performed in three different halls: the Portego (the central hall), Tiepolo Hall and the bedroom with an alcove; during the interval, it is possible to appreciate the splendour of the halls facing the Grand Canal. The palace architecture, with its countless doors in high-quality wood, allows the artists to move around an “all-round” stage space so that the audience can fully participate in Rossini’s most amusing opera.
The interiors environments are candlelit and the elegant costumes, designed by Anthony Knight, are inspired by period clothes and made of the finest fabrics.
The exhilarating direction combined with the vocal and instrumental virtuosity of the performers will guarantee the spectators a vibrant, cheerful evening.

Venue
 
Palazzo Minotto Barbarigo
 

The Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto (also called Palazzo Minotto Barbarigo) is a 15th-century palace on the Grand Canal in Venice, northern Italy, next to the much larger Palazzo Corner.[1] Built in the Venetian Gothic style, it was originally two palaces, Palazzo Barbarigo and Palazzo Minotto, later joined together. The Barbarigo palace was owned by the Barbarigo family for several centuries and was the birthplace of Gregorio Barbarigo, who once refused the Papal Crown.[2] It was later owned by the Minotto and Martinengo families.

Three staterooms face the Grand Canal and another three face Rio Zaguri. In the first half of the 18th century frescoes and paintings by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Francesco Fontebasso and Carpoforo Tencalla were commissioned by Pietro Barbarigo. Its chapel has Louis XIV Style elm flooring inlaid with olive-root marquetry. The palace's doors, are in the same style, banded in walnut with bronze handles shaped as vine leaves. The floors of the staterooms are a blend of terrazzo paving and Venetian "pastellone" paving.
The palace is actually formed by two different buildings, merged in the 17th century. The ancient part, a 1400s Venetian-Gothic architecture featuring 12th century Byzantine friezes, was originally known as Palazzo Minotto; the newer part, Palazzo Barbarigo, was built in the 17th century.
