Town barber helps count court fair lady
28 June 2000 | by (Rhode Island, USA) – See all my reviews

This production is an excellent presentation of the opera by Rosini. The Barber is a self-confident man about town who happens to have many contacts in the city. The Count wants to court his fair maiden (Rosina) in disguise, so she does not know that he is a count and will fall in love with him for himself and not just his title and wealth. He enlists the aid of the Barber to enter into her household, pretending to be a music teacher to avoid conflict with her guardian, an older gentleman named Don Basilio, who wants her hand for himself.

The plot is silly of course, but it is a farce, and the music, costumes, sets, etc. are wonderful...the singers and the conductor are all world class artists and of course, Rosini is a very well know composer. This film is great fun and its not just for opera lovers!
