On Saturday we enjoyed one of our favorite NYC treats-Opera. Gioachino Rossini’s famous comic Il Barbiere di Siviglia. Truly a delight!
Key highlights for me:
-Listening to the Overture under the direction of Maurizio Benini. There’s nothing like a full orchestra performing live…….amazing! Click here to capture the essence of what we heard.
-The soprano that played Rosina’s character, Diana Damrau, what a voice….gives me goose-bumps just thinking about it- absolutely divine!
-Finally learning about the story of Figaro, the barber.
The entire performance was great.
Enjoy and thanks for viewing!
