Backstage glimpses with Boston Lyric Opera

Well it's the opening day of rehearsal and we have 26 more days
(of intense work by the singers and production staff ) until you have your first chance to see BLO's colorful production of Rossini's masterpiece THE BARBER of SEVILLE. I thought it might be fun to having a running, daily check-in with Rossini's world  here on the blog ... consisting of anecdotes, film clips,
various (and wildly varied) performances of his music, etc. I think Rossini 
himself, a sardonic self critic, fabled raconteur, and creator of exemplary
(even manic) musical wit might well be intrigued or charmed at what we turn up--or perhaps in some cases amusingly  appalled with what has been done in his
name. Enjoy.

What better way to kick off than with an Overture:

Topics: General Opera, John Conklin, opera roundup, Rossini, The Barber of Seville
