Video projections of the Opera buffa “The barber of Seville” by Gioachino Rossini

Introduction by Luca Rebeggiani


The Barber of Seville is a work in two acts by Gioachino Rossini on a libretto by Cesare Sterbini taken from the comedy by Beaumarchais. Before Rossini, Giovanni Paisiello had staged his Barber of Seville in 1782, ten years before the birth of Rossini. The work was chosen by Duke Francesco Sforza Cesarini, impresario of the Argentina Theatre in Rome and commissioned to Rossini for the upcoming carnival. The impresario proposed as subject “The Barber of Seville” to be sure of the approval of the pontifical censors. The first performance, in 1816 at the Argentina  Theatre in Rome, was unsuccessful due to the supporters of Paisiello; but already from the second recital, the public acclaimed Rossini’s work, leading it to obscure the previous version and becoming one of the most represented works in the world.
