MetOpera: The Barber of Seville (Encore)

Gioacchino Rossini's The Barber of Seville (Il Barbiere di Siviglia), performed as part of the Metropolitan Opera's 2014-2015 season captured live in HD on the New York stage. Conducted by Michele Mariotti.

"In Bartlett Sher’s effervescent production of Rossini's most popular opera, Isabel Leonard is the beautiful and feisty Rosina, who won’t be kept under lock and key. Lawrence Brownlee is her conspiring flame, Almaviva, and Christopher Maltman is the omnipotent barber, Figaro." (MetOpera)

The title role was sung by the charismatic baritone Christopher Maltman, who made a spectacular entrance atop a wagon pulled by adoring citizens. He oozed sex appeal during his opening aria, “Largo al factotum,” wearing a magnificent red Phrygian cap like a royal insignia.

Few operas can provide an evening of such pure delight as Il Barbiere di Siviglia, and few productions of Rossini's comic gem are as much fun as the one now on the boards at the Metropolitan Opera.
