In the past everything was better. Only the shoes are not

We live in a crappy time, and the music was better in the past: the old Don Bartolo does not see clearly in Gioachino Rossini's "Il barbiere di Siviglia" so. But he draws unusually drastic consequences of his aversion to the progress of: He is, in fact, in a couple of containers, a Rococo world. During the Overture a litter provide. And locks his ward Rosina, the bears actually prefer a colorful Mickey mouse dress in a Hoop skirt so wide that you can't actually flee: they did not fit anymore through the door.

powder and Tattoos

Until two and a half weeks ago since the last Rossini - Premiere of the Zurich Opera house; since Jan Philipp Gloger showed a brand new, pungent, funny staging of "Il turco in Italia". Now, the traditional Winterthur guest of the Opera house, we are in a very different Rossini-world. In a bustling, urtheatralische, full of delight, far removed from reality: The young Viennese Director John Pölzgutter, had his spurs once as an assistant Director in Lucerne abverdient, characterizes the figures exactly as it is provided for in the Libretto. And you see, at least partly, also, as is known from the thick covered puderten Rossini stagings of the past.

But the present, which cannot be stopped, as the heavy door doesn't help with the set designer Nikolaus Webern Don Bartolo Rococo-off rich. This presence is called Figaro: The most famous Barber in the history of music wears sunglasses, a pair of scissors tattoo behind the ear and a blue Pompadour.

Although he, too, must wear knee pants, if he shave Don Bartolo or in need. But he has sneakers in the Luggage, with which he is Bartolo's servant Berta enjoys her uncomfortable Antique footwear only to happy to get rid of (that as surreptitious advertising for the brand with the three stripes will be done, forgive you the performance like, also belongs to the present).

you can Also use a smart phone he smuggled in the Container: While Don Bartolo is trying to catch a glimpse of love letters, communicate Rosina and her suitor, the count Almaviva, for a long time by Whatsapp.

Pitter-Patter to the beat

Because it fits perfectly, the is by Enrico Cicconofri-operated piano in the orchestra pit, a ringtone by yourself. The musikkollegium Winterthur is involved, under the direction of Antonino Fogliano with a lot of momentum and precision in this Fun. And when Director John Pölzgutter knock his figures against all the rules of contemporary Inszenierens in the bar to the door or on the stage, Pitter-patter, then this has a charm of its own. It would be poorly made, would it look like to "Theäterle". But it is well made.

ensure also and above all the singers of the International Opera Studio. Young you all are, but half of you must Old present – and you do that with fantasy the full support of the costume designer Janina Ammon great. The collective witch-shot certainly looks each and every different. And if Richard Walshe installs as Don Bartolo a couple of targeted tatterige sounds, then the musical Comedy is perfect.

Even otherwise, the roles are maxed out: confident, playful, style, and point secure. And if the gorgeous Sinéad O’leaves Kelly as Rosina, her coloratura vertebrae; if Dean Murphy's Figaro charm and mischief radiates; if Leonardo Sánchez as Almaviva accompany his Serenade with the guitar, and Justyna Blujs obdurate Berta cheered your sneakers with a Aria: Then you know why this piece is still a Hit.

Further performances until 25. May. (
