Il barbiere di Siviglia, opera buffa in two acts (1816)
Program is subject to change
Damiano Michieletto makes his directing debut at the Paris Opera with this new production of Rossini's ever-popular Barber of Seville. Soprano Karine Deshayes revives her virtuoso and sensitive portrayal of Rosina.
This is undoubtedly the most famous opera buffa in the history of music and an eternal source of delight. Rossini composed it in just a few weeks, borrowing the overture and certain airs from his own serious and comic works. All of the remarkable ensembles, however, are original. In the finale of the first act, Rossini combines multiple styles and interlinks duos, trios, quintets and sextets with stupefying virtuosity. Il barbiere di Siviglia was also one of the first operatic triumphs in Europe.
Performed in Italian.
