Opera de Paris: Barber of Seville (Il Barbiere di Siviglia)

Rated NR 184 minutes 2014

Undoubtedly the most famous opera buffa in the history of music and an eternal source of delight, Rossini's remarkable opera was composed in only a few weeks. Although the premiere, performed on February 10, 1816 in Rome was a resounding flop, the opera was quickly revived on February 22, when "The Barber" received rapturous applause.

Indeed, how could Rossini have escaped this initial resistance? He pitted the old world against the new, authoritarianism against liberty! With its incredible verve and youthful cheer, this was the work that built Rossini's brilliant international reputation.
