Rossini’s Barbiere di Siviglia, composed at the age of 24, is considered to be the finest comic opera in existence! From start to finish it is marvelously crafted, brilliantly inventive, and uproariously funny. The libretto is based on Le Marriage de Figaro of Baumarchais. The setting is Seville in the 18th Century. Count Almaviva, a Spanish grandee, has arrived in Seville disguised as a poor student named Lindoro, in order to woo Rosina, the ward of the pompous Dr. Bartolo, who plans to marry her himself. Almaviva enlists the help of Figaro, the barber, in winning Rosina’s affections. Together they trick Dr. Bartolo and the Count marries Rosina.
