Opéra bouffe en 2 actes de Gioacchino Rossini - Opera


Comic opera in 2 acts by Gioacchino Rossini

Original version in Italian with subtitles

Since 1996, Opera 2001 has pursued its ambition to introduce the greatest works in the opera repertoire to new generations. And no opera can better illustrate this idea of handing over to new generations than the Barber of Seville which, following its resounding success in 1816 heralded the advent of the modern opera and helped Rossini supplant his illustrious predecessors. It may be a comic opera but it is also a sharp criticism of the social climate, and it is this same opposition between the old world and a new generation which is the basis of this story: although old Doctor Bartolo is intent on marrying his ward, the pretty Rosine, she is in love with the young Count Almaviva. But the Count only has a few hours to snatch his beauty from the clutches of rival! With the complicity of the barber, Figaro, he enters Bartolo's home… After many madcap situations, the love of the beautiful Rosine and Count Almaviva ultimately triumphs.
