Notes & Reviews:

"The Barber of Seville" is Rossini's most popular opera. Its effervescent overture presents a perfect platform for the amusing plot in which the barber, Figaro, stage-manages a romance between Count Almaviva and Rosina and puts to flight the old suitor, Dr. Bartolo. In this introduction, we explore the facets of this opera that make it a favorite for everyone from opera houses and symphonies to Bugs Bunny.
