)-- Netherlands Opera Bicentennial Production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville Debuts on DVD October 27
Kultur announces the DVD release of the Netherlands Opera production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. This acclaimed production will be available on DVD October 27, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
This revival production was staged to commemorate Rossini’s 200th Birthday. It is conducted by Alberto Zedda, starring David Malis and Jennifer Larmore and directed by Dario Fo.
Fo has said that “Rossini is the musician of eating and love. He composes music rich in herbs and aromas, in which you will find olives, tomatoes, fish, grapes, roses, and rosemary, sheets, and tablecloths, dry wine and the laughter of girls. His “Barber” is a joyful carnival. During the overture he fills the stage with carnival revelers and immediately the commedia dell’arte origins of opera buffa are restored. Visual theatrics abound, never at the expense of the music, but highlighting it, engaging the eye as well as the ear.”
The Barber of Seville will be available on DVD on October 27, 2009 for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
