Gioacchino Rossini: Il barbiere di Siviglia
Comic opera in two acts in Italian language
Gioacchino Rossini as a well-known gourmand used to exaggerate a bit when claiming: “The mouth is a much more sensitive organ that the ear.” He exaggerated as usual and he laughed. In spite of his mastery as a cook, and we would not allow us to hesitate about it, our opera stage is interested first of all in his composition mastery. The composer has been ‘mixing’ Italian bel canto with his extraordinary invention and the special sense of humour in his own original way.
Conductor: Martin Leginus / Rastislav Štúr (29.12.)
