Catalogue Number: 09K039
Reference: AB 20009
Description: Of course, it isn't Rossini's Barbiere, which belongs to early Romanticism, but this 1782 opera buffa was a classic example of the genre at the time, showing Paisiello's great skill at musical slapstick, depicting comic situations and complicated, humorous dialogues. Only modern version available. Mirko Guadagnini (tenor), Donato Di Gioia (baritone), Stefania Donzelli (soprano), Chamber Orchestra of the Giovanni Paisiello Festival; Giovanni Di Stefano. Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2.0. Region 0. 4:3 screen format. 117 min.
