Il Barbiere di Siviglia

(by Gioacchino Rossini)

El Barbero de Sevilla

Real Teatro de Retiro - Teatro Real de Madrid

Teatro de la Maestranza de Sevilla

Premiered on November 11, 2023

The intrigues, and amusing entanglements of the Il Barbiere di Siviglia that G. Rossini composed based on the text of the brilliant Beaumarchais, have a wonderful potential to bring the passion of the opera to the hearts of the youngest audiences.

Everyone understands and accesses the dynamic and crazy world of The Barber of Seville, reading the many double meanings and metaphors that hide under the foreground of its very humorous story.

And surely this happens because the tensions between the two generations facing each other in The Barber of Seville, with their different desires, ambitions and ways of seeing the world, are analyzed by Rossini with a filter of irony that strips them and makes them more tender and vulnerable.
