Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais invented the figure of the equally intriguing as well as shrewd barber and dedicated him a whole comedy trilogy, of which the first two parts Le Barbier de Seville ou La Precaution Inutile (1775) and La Folle Journee ou Le Mariage De Figaro (1778) became world famous. The third part, L’autre Tartuffe ou La Mere Coupable, which appeared in 1792, was more behind the success of its predecessors, perhaps due to the turmoil of the French Revolution. Although the revolutionary potential of the second part of the comedy in the brilliant setting of Mozart - Die Hochzeit des Figaro - is most clearly noticeable, the barber of the first part also has a disrespectful temper, which predestines him as the protagonist of a comic opera. Giovanni Paisiello had a resounding success in 1782 with his setting of the Barbiere, so that Rossini took on a seemingly overpowering role model when he decided to make the same story once again the subject of a comic opera. And yet, 34 years after Paisiello’s triumph, he succeeded in staging the perhaps funniest and fastest opera buffa in opera history.

The opera will be performed in Italien language with German and English subtitles.
