The Barber of Seville is the opera by Giacomo Rossini performed by the Serbian National Theater. This comic opera from two acts is directed by Ivan Klemenc, with conductor Aleksandar Kojic.
The content of the Seville Barber was taken from one of the two brilliant pieces of the French theater writer Beaumarchais, both of which have the same main characters: Figaro, Almaviva, Rosina, etc. The other of these pieces was already composed by Mozart (Figaro marriage). Rossini removed his Seville barber from a political context, and, above all, went with the comic of characters and the situation – and he did it brilliant.
Opera is performed in two acts. The show lasts for two hours and forty minutes, with one intermission.
