About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of Rossini's masterwork in cencert version at Barcelona's remarkable Palau de la Música Catalana.
Gioachino Rossini was an Italian composer of the 19th century. He made his debut at the age of 18 and soon became one the most popular opera composer in history. His best known operas are The Barber of Seville Il barbiere di Siviglia, The Italian Girl in Algiers L'italiana in Algeri, and Cinderella La Cenerentola. In general, his style can be defined as song‐like melodic which earned him the nickname of 'the Italian Mozart”. Later on he became famous for his exciting buildup of orchestral sound over a repeated phrase, which is now known as a 'Rossini crescendo”.
