Notes and Editorial Reviews

Fast, funny, and furious, this Glyndebourne Festival Opera production of Rossini's classic opera boasts a torrent of sparkling music, while John Cox's production - sometimes outrageously boisterous, sometimes subtly inventive - adds it's own distinctive luster to this comic masterpiece. Soprano Maria Ewing excels as the bewitching Rosina, and John Rawnsley gives a virtuoso performance as the witty barber Figaro. Conducted by Sylvain Cambrelling. Sung in Italian, with subtitles available in English, French, German, and Spanish. Region 1, NTSC, Full Screen 4:3, Dolby Digital Stereo.
