Gioachino Antonio Rossini (1792 – 1868)
“The Barber of Seville”, or “The Useless Precaution” (“Il barbiere di Siviglia, ossia L’inutile precauzione”) is an opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with a libretto (based on Beaumarchais‘s comedy Le Barbier de Séville) by Cesare Sterbini.
The overture, first written for “Aureliano in Palmira“, is a famous example of Rossini’s characteristic Italian style.
The première (under the title Almaviva, or the Useless Precaution) took place on February 20, 1816, at the Teatro Argentina, Rome.
