    Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia at Opera Bastille

    From February 2nd to March 4th, 2016, visit one of the most prominent landmarks of Paris, Opera Bastille and get the chance to attend Gioacchino Rossini’s finest opera, Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville), also known as ossia L'inutile precauzione (The Futile Precaution).

    Premiered on February 20th, 1816 at the Teatro Argentina, Rome, Il barbiere di Siviglia has proven a conspicuous success during the last two centuries.

    This two-act opera buffa was written by the Italian librettist, Cesare Sterbini (1784 -1831), who was inspired by the French play Le Barbier de Séville (1775) by Pierre Beaumarchais (1732-1799).

    This show is conducted by the young Italian operatic conductor Giacomo Sagripanti and directed by the renowned Italian director Damiano Michieletto. It lasts 3 hours and 5 minutes with only one interval and is provided with French and English supertitles.
