The Composition

Il Barbiere di Siviglia

Libretto written in italian by Cesare Sterbini, was first premiered on a Tuesday on February 20 of 1816
Il barbiere di Siviglia, o sia L'inutil precauzione è un'opera di Gioachino Rossini su libretto di Cesare Sterbini, tratto dalla commedia omonima di Beaumarchais. La prima fu un fiasco, riscattato immediatamente dal successo delle repliche e l'opera di Rossini finì presto per oscurare il precedente lavoro di Giovanni Paisiello, divenendo una delle più rappresentate e probabilmente la più celebre del compositore pesarese.

Gioacchino Rossini

Short biography of the composer
Gioachino Antonio Rossini (29 February 1792 – 13 November 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La Cenerentola (Cinderella), and the French-language epics Moïse et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell (William Tell). A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart". Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history. He is quoted as joking, "Give me the laundress' bill and I will even set that to music."
