Rossini was only 24 years old when in 1816 he wrote his seventeenth and most famous opera, The Barber of Seville, in an astonishing three weeks.

Michael Hampe¡¦s humorous direction of this 1988 live-performance at the Schwetzinger Festspiele stands out with its high tempo that makes for a highly exuberant production. Ezio Frigerios¡¦ appealing stage setting and Mauro Pagano¡¦s colourful costumes heighten the comic effect.

Gabriele Ferro¡¦s direction strikes a beautiful balance between a vibrant orchestral performance and a superb choir.

The irresistible Cecilia Bartoli leads a cast that includes David Kübler, Gino Quilico and Carlos Feller.
