The Barber of Seville

The Barber of Seville (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) is an opera buffa, or comic opera, in two acts by [...]Gioachino Rossini with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini. It premiered (under the title Almaviva, or The Useless Precaution) on February 20, 1816, at the Teatro Argentina, Rome. The overture, first written by Rossini for his operatic dramma serio Aureliano in Palmira, is a famous example of his characteristic Italian style.
