The Other Barbiere
J. Camhi | 12/31/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm surprised no one has left reviews of this DVD. I think it is great that we can buy DVDs of operas that are not normally played in opera houses.

Paisello's Barbiere was very popular before Rossini's, and when Rossini's opera premiered in 1816, Paisello supporters booed it and made Rossini's opening night a failure, although Rossisni's opera was a hit by the end of the week.

I think Paisello's opera is excellent and neither Paisello nor his opera deserve obscurity although I wouln't say Paisello's Barbiere is better the Rossini's masterpiece.

The music is beautiful. I'm no expert on opera, but I enjoyed the singing. The set is a bit minimal for my taste.
