Description

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.

Fun Intro to a Fun Opera

I very much enjoyed this intro Rossini's The Barber of Seville. Being unfamiliar with the piece it was good to hear a number of famous operatic tunes in their proper context. The narrative is covered and requires close listening to follow, as Count Amative is always playing someone other than himself. Fabulous NAXOS classical music recordings are interspersed throughout to highlight the best moments in the opera.
