Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Gioachino RossiniA series of screenings dedicated to Italian Opera introduced by Deirdre O' Grady, Emeritus Professor of Italian and Comparative Studies University College Dublin. Conductor Claudio Abbado with Luigi Alva, Enzo Dara, Teresa Berganza, Hermann Prey, Paolo Montarsolo, Stefania Malagù, 140’Jean-Pierre Ponelle directed this film of Rossini’s comic masterpiece four years before filming Mozart’s Figaro. The result was an irresistibly entertaining and musically rewarding film, starring Herman Prey as Beaumarchais’s scheming barber of Seville. The other main roles in Ponelle’s Barber are taken by four of the most celebrated Rossini interpreters of the past decades: Teresa Berganza, Luigi Alva, Enzo Dara and Paolo Montarsolo.
