Opera buffa fans unite! Paris Opéra Bastille provides several performances of Gioacchino Rossini’s masterpiece, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, from January 11 to February 12, 2020. The occasion to get into this adaptation of Beaumarchais’ work.

Rossini’s work as seen from modernity… This is what the Opéra Bastille offers with several performances of his famous opera buffa, Il Barbiere di Siviglia – from January 11 to February 12, 2020. A work of the composer adapted in an eponymous novel by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais.

If you know a bit about French literature, you know the story: Figaro – a barber from his state – goes help Il Conte d’Almaviva to conquer Rosina’s heart who – is taken by Bartolo. The latter expects to marry his ward helped by Don Basilio. An impossible love story between Rosina and Almaviva, as the opera likes and that ends on a lovely note for both lovebirds, not forgetting the help of genius Figaro, never lacking ideas and costumes.

A production staged by Damiano Michieletto – coming from Venice, the birthplace of Commedia delle’Arte and likely to adapt this “burlesque vein in Rossini’s music” that we find in the original version. A transposition of the work into a modern Sevilla, “inspired by the cinema of Almodovar”… In other words, the occasion to rediscover a masterpiece of the French literature through Rossini’s composition, as well as one of the most popular works for opera lovers. Let’s go friends, shall we?
