Rossini - Il barbiere di Siviglia

Virgin Classics: 6945819. “Captured at London’s Royal Opera House with an unbeatable cast. Joyce DiDonato (as Rosina) famously wearing a bright pink plaster cast on her leg and whizzing around the stage in a wheelchair. Florez, Spagnoli, Corbelli complete the cast.
Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) was an Italian composer, famed for this, La Cenerentola and L’italiana in Algeri. 1st performance Rome, February 1816. Semiramide and Guillaume Tell are some later works.”
