Rossini’s masterpiece Il barbiere di Siviglia is a fast-paced, thrilling opera featuring a lot of popular arias. Staged by Herbert Fritsch as a colorful, turbulent, diversely choreographed piece, it is extraordinary musical theater: 

“A feast for the ears against a colorful backdrop.” (DLF Kultur

Juan Diego Flórez “fulfills all expectations of a Rossini singer in a class of his own” (BR Klassik), while “witty and vocally profound is Ildar Abdrazakov as Basilio” (Der Standard) and Vasilisa Berzhanskaya “is convincing in her house debut as Rosina.” (DLF Kultur)

History

Rossini: Il Barbiere di Siviglia

Its story of two young lovers, an elderly guardian who wants the girl for himself, and Figaro, the resourceful barber of the title make Gioachino Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia (1816) one of opera’s most beloved comedies. At the end of the first act, the leading characters, confused by what’s going on, sing about their feeling of hearing the sound of an anvil being hammered inside their heads—a turn of phrase taken literally in director Bartlett Sher’s hit Met production.
