Short cut for the Barber of Seville

Ian Wright, on guitar, and singer Frank Church were serenading some of the specimens at the Surgeons’ Hall Museum yesterday, as they prepared for their roles in a pocket-sized version of the Barber of Seville by Scottish Opera.

A Little Bit of Barber uses a cellist, guitarist, storyteller, singer and illustrations to condense the best bits of the classic comic opera into a 20-minute show. Edinburgh performances include the Scottish Storytelling Centre tonight at 6pm.
