Il Barbiere di Siviglia
This two acts melodrama by Rossini has as its protagonist the count of Almaviva, a rich and powerful Spanish man, who falls in love with Rosina, a young orphan from Seville. Her tutor Bartolo is in love with her too. Bartolo imprisons Rosina in his house because he is jealous. The count, to speak to her, goes to Seville incognito saying that his name is Lindoro. Figaro, the barber of Seville, who recognized him, decides to help him talking to his beloved Rosina. At the end, thanks also to Figaro, love triumphs. Funny opera, it is put up by Maggio Musicale with the direction of Damiano Michieletto.
The geisha Cio-Cio-San has a tremendous destiny. Beautiful, but fragile like a “butterfly”, here comes Madama Butterfly, she marries, when she is only fifteen, Pinkerton, an American naval officer, who comes back after three years to claim the son born from their union. The young mother cannot do anything but sacrifice herself. This is the story told by this heartrending, but wonderful Japanese tragedy in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, with the direction of Fabio Ceresa.
