Rossini – Barber of Seville
Probably no opera hero arouses such laughter and such sympathy as the Seville barber. Thanks to the phenomenal comedy of Beaumarchais Figaro invents harmless intrigues, opposes iniquity and at the same time entertains to tears. Rossini’s extremely spontaneous music gives an incredible dynamism to the love adventures. The tempo and energy emanating from this work of the young composer have already accompanied the creation of The Barber: according to the legend, the libretto was created in 12 days, and the music to the entire opera – in less than two weeks. Despite numerous problems during the premiere itself, which became a huge failure, the story of Figaro gained prominence, and Rossini became one of the most popular composers of his time.
