Gioachino Rossini: El barbero de Sevilla

Gioachino Rossini: El barbero de Sevilla

Grischa Asagaroff’s production – in the intimate atmosphere of the Opera Zurich –
featuring the soloists Vesselina Kasarova and Manuel Lanza.
Rossini's popular work contains some of opera's most tuneful and recognizable music -
from its lively overture to Figaro's Largo al factotum to Rosina's Una voce poco fa. Based
on the play of the same title by the French dramatist Beaumarchais (1732-1799), the
opera is a delightful rigmarole of riotous situations in a race to win the hand of the young
Vesselina Kasarovas Rosina made this production of ‘Il Barbiere di Siviglia’ a memorable
event. She captivated the audience with fluent coloraturas, an infinite variety of tone
colors and nuances of expression, as well as her phenomenal versatility as an actress.
