Opera Gala Il Barbiere di Siviglia - Monaco
Opera Il Barbiere di Siviglia
On 20 February 1816, just as Carnival week was approaching its climax, Gioachino Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia had its (eventful) premiere at the Teatro Argentina in Rome. The new opera was a highly appropriate match for the unfettered atmosphere of the Roman carnival: delighting in masks and disguise, parody and the grotesque, it is permeated through and through with the spirit of carnival. In Rossini’s work, everything is energized, sharpened or exaggerated, charged with dramatic vibrancy. And thus the comedy in Rossini’s work is closer to commedia dell’arte than the French play on which it is based.
The meta-theatrical dimension that characterizes Il Barbiere di Siviglia is being further expanded in Rolando Villazón’s production – thus opening up new potential for comedy and moments of poetry. An additional protagonist is being introduced, played by the great (and fastest in the world) quick-change performer Arturo Brachetti, a daydreamer who seeks distraction in old movies, especially those starring a particular diva with whom he has become enamoured.This is an Access Event.
