Barber of Seville - Virtually

Join Us Virtually
Italian Opera Series: The Barber of Seville 

Italian opera composer Gioacchino Rossini wrote 39 operas before retiring at the young age of 37. He was groundbreaking for his time in the world of both opera seria and opera buffa (comedic opera), but perhaps his most famous opera is the opera buffa Il Barbiere di Siviglia. The work is a prequel to Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, and both works are drawn from a three-part trilogy by the playwright Beaumarchais, several of whose plays were banned for their revolutionary nature and the power afforded to the lower classes. Learn about the history, structure, and prominence in modern culture of Rossini's exciting, innovative and fun opera! 

Instructors Ashley Galvani Bell (Carnegie Hall, New York City Opera, Sarasota Opera) and Anton Armendariz Diaz (Rioja Forum, Principal de Castellón, Festival de Cine de Barcelona) come from a background of operatic performance and directing, and their passion is likely to ignite yours.
