19:00 Il Barbiere di Siviglia
Opera in two acts by Gioachino Rossini. Libretto by Cesare Sterbini after the comedy of the same name by Pierre-Augustin de Beaumarchais. Presented with one interval. Conductor: Pier Giorgio Morandi. Stage Director: Evgeny Pisarev. Set Designer: Zinovy Margolin. Sung in Italian. Rossini’s operatic masterpiece The Barber of Seville has been staged all over the world, and even children recognize Figaro’s famous aria, while Figaro qua, Figaro l? and La calunnia ? un venticello have become bywords. The witty Rossini, being not only an outstanding composer but also a brilliant cook, developed the recipe for the opera’s incessant, astounding success. Irrepressible Rosina refuses to marry her pompous old guardian. Meanwhile, a bold young count is eager to win Rosina for himself. And who’s going to make sure those two finish the opera united? The cleverest character in all of Seville: the barber Figaro, whose services are sought after by everyone for everything (the guy has a lot more talents than just cutting hair). Rossini’s music — the aural equivalent of champagne — is the last word in humor, inspiring smiles and laughter on every page of the score, which is what makes Barber the most popular of all operatic comedies.
