One might imagine that Rossini had in mind Jean-François Sivadier when he composed The Barber of Seville, so much does his masterpiece achieve the perfect union of the stage director’s two great passions: Italian opera and the acerbic comedy of Beaumarchais.
Opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868).
Libretto by Cesare Sterbini after thecomedy by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais.
