Description

The Barber of Seville is an opera buffa in two acts by Rossini with an Italian libretto by Cesare Sterbini.

The libretto was based on Pierre Beaumarchais's French comedy Le Barbier de Séville (1775).

The première took place on 20 February 1816 at the Teatro Argentina, Rome.

After two hundred years, it still remains a popular work.

The opera recounts events that revolve around the clever and enterprising character named Figaro, the barber of the title.

“Every now and again a recording that is both truly outstanding and will have great appeal to brass band listeners appears on the shelves. We are delighted to make it the first recipient of our CD of the Year Editors Award.”
