Rossini's 'Il barbiere di Siviglia' with San Martín, Romeu, Martínez and Álvarez from Granollers
Rossini's 'Il barbiere di Siviglia' is an opera buffa in two acts with an Italian libretto by Cesare Sterbini. The libretto was based on Pierre Beaumarchais's French comedy Le Barbier de Séville. In a public square outside Bartolo's house a band of musicians and a poor student named Lindoro are serenading, to no avail, the window of Rosina. Lindoro, who is really the young Count Almaviva in disguise, hopes to make the beautiful Rosina love him for himself—not his money. Almaviva pays off the musicians who then depart, leaving him to brood alone.
Performers: Figaro: César San Martín. Rosina: Carmen Romeu. Count Almaviva: Pablo Martínez. Dottor Bartolo: Fernando Álvarez. Don Basilio: Jeroboám Tejera. Berta: Eugènia Montenegro. Fiorello: Pau Camero.
