The instantly familiar music of Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia has been featured in cartoons, commercials, and TV shows galore, but it's best heard in its original form, where its infectious charm and bubbling joy are given free reign. In the Met's new production, by acclaimed theater director Bartlett Sher and his Tony Award-winning team from The Light in the Piazza the dashing young Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Florez proves why he is one of the world's greatest Rossini singers, in his calling-card role of Count Almaviva.
This performance was originally transmitted live on March 24, 2007.
