19:00 Il Barbiere di Siviglia
Opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini. Music Director: Eri Klas. Conductors: Evgeny Samoilov, Felix Korobov, Vasily Valitov. 170 min (with one intermission). Sung in Italian with Russian surtitles. 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 là and La calunnia è 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. Here it is: take seven bright characters and an intoxicating love intrigue, spice the mixture with humorous dialogues, dress with wonderful melodies and sprinkle virtuosic ensembles on top. Rossini’s masterpiece has been cooked by the Novaya Opera’s Chef, Maestro Eri Klas, accomplished English stage director Elijah Moshinsky and topnotch English designer Anne Tilby, specially invited for the occasion. Stage Director Elijah Moshinsky y has set "The Barber" in what he calls "a vague 1920s. "I wanted to find a naive time," he said. "My setting isn't real, of course, but the characters have to be real."
