Il barbiere di Siviglia

Il barbiere di Siviglia ph. Teatro dell'Opera Official Website

Io sono docile, son rispettosa, 
sono ubbediente, dolce, amorosa 
mi lascio reggere, mi fo guidar. 
Ma se mi toccano dov’è il mio debole, 
sarò una vipera e cento trappole 
prima di cedere farò giocar. 
(Rosina, Atto I, Scena V) 

Gioachino Rossini's masterpiece is back on stage at the suggestive Baths of Caracalla as part of the summer season of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma with the direction of Lorenzo Mariani and the musical conduction of Stefano Montanari

Taken from the play of the same name by Pierre -Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais, the opera buffa in two acts, with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini, was premiered at the Teatro di Torre Argentina during the 1816 carnival with the title of Almaviva, o sia l’inutile precauzione, ending among the whistles, due to the acclaimed previous Paisiello's version. However, already from the second performance, the work was a huge success, becoming one of the most ever represented in the world. 

The Hollywood-style production - with sets by William Orlandi, lighting by Linus Fellbom, choreography by Luciano Cannito and original costumes by Silvia Aymonino - accompanies the story full of disguises and sudden twists and turns. The Count Almaviva is secretly in love with the beautiful Rosina, who lives as a prisoner in the house of her elderly guardian, Don Bartolo, who is determined to marry her. The Spanish nobleman asks the barber and factotum Figaro for help to conquer the girl. The man will help the two lovers to fulfil their love dream with a series of tricks and subterfuges. 

On stage, a prestigious cast - including Davide Luciano, Cecilia Molinari and Rene’ Barbera - sings the enchanting Rossini arias, accompanied by the Teatro dell'Opera Chorus conducted by Roberto Gabbiani.
