Tell Your Friends:


The Barber at Seville is Rossini's most popular opera. Its effervescent overture (written originally for another work) presents is perfect platform for the amusing plot in which the barber, Figaro, stage-manages a romance between Count Amative and Rossini, and puts to weight the old suitor, Dr. Bartola.
