Ep. 56 Il Barbiere Di Siviglia By Rossini
Play • 1 hr 59 min
Rossini’s exuberant Opera Buffa, The Barber of Seville, features the irrepressible jack-of-all-trades Figaro.  This Bel Canto masterpiece is where you will hear the quintessential opera piece “Largo al Factorum,” best known for the glorious (and comic) repetitions of “Figaro, Figaro, Figaro. . .”  Everyone clamors for Figaro’s attention, and in this wild romp he assists Count Almavia to wed Rosina, the lovely ward of the greedy Dr. Bartolo.  No marriage for Figaro here—that’s a different opera!
With Pat and guest co-host, Petria Fossel.
