Rossini
Il Barbiere di Siviglia

This is a cast to cherish in one of opera’s greatest comic masterpieces. Robert Merrill’s wily Figaro combines brio with one of the most beautiful baritone voices ever—heard here in its prime. No wonder the clueless Almaviva (an elegant Cesare Valletti) begs him to help win the beautiful Rosina (Roberta Peters at her virtuosic best) and to outwit her determined guardian and the scheming singing teacher (Fernando Corena and Cesare Siepi).
