Peter Bording goes from barber to dictator

Peter Bording
They're a couple of productions of Rossini's Barber of Seville going on around the world right now, most prominently in San Francisco and Turin. But the production in the Netherlands at De Nationale Reisopera caught our eye. It stars Dutch barihunk Peter Bording in the title role.

The colorful and witty production is directed by former tenor Laurence Dale, who now frequently directs at the Reisopera. Tenor Mark Milhofer sings Almaviva, mezzo Karin Strobos is Rosina, the brilliant internationally acclaimed Italian baritone Bruno Praticò performs his signature role of Dr. Bartolo and Nicholas Crawley and Bora Balçi take on  Basilio and Fiorello. Go online to get your tickets. Click HERE to listen to a snippet from "Dunque io son."

Peter Bording and Milica Jovanovic
Three days after the runs ends on November 26th, he switches back to his other love, musical theater, as he portrays Juan Perón in a German language production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita at the Hessisches Staatstheater in Wiesbaden, Germanay. Evita is sung by the stunning Milica Jovanovic. Tickets are extremely limited, so go online now if you want to see Bording in one of his specialty roles. Performances run through February 5th.
