Figaro, Figaro, Figaro!

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!
