Rossini: Il Barbiere Di Siviglia



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This production of Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia, staged by Coline Serreau, was presented at the Opera Bastille for the first time in 2002. It was the successful film director's second opera project. The international cast features one of the leading lyric mezzos working in the Rossini repertoire - American Joyce DiDonato sings Rosina. German-Italian star tenor Roberto Sacca takes the role of her seducer, Count Almaviva and Czech baritone Dalibor Jenis, currently one of the best Figaros available, completes the leading trio. Delicate Spanish bass baritone Carlos Chausson playing Bartolo, Rosina's guardian, and Icelandic bass Kristinn Sigmundsson as the curious music teacher Basilio provide suitable buffo material for the opera's various comic scenes. Bruno Campanella, one of the leading interpreters of the Belcanto repertoire worldwide led this musically excellent event from the pit. French director Coline Serreau, best known for her film"Three men and a baby" and her 70's feminist documentaries sets the opera in a Seville under Osmanic occupation. For Serreau, the story of the imprisoned Rosina remains current in modern society where \the imprisonment of half of mankind is still the rule"."
