Gioachino Rossini

Teatro Real 2005

Starring an excellent cast, with Juan Diego Florez, Maria Bayo, Pietro Spagnoli Y Ruggero Raimondi, this production of The Barber of Seville premiered at the Teatro Real Madrid, the month of january 2005, had the musical direction of the great Rossinian expert Gianluigi Gelmetti and staging of Emilio Sagi, Artistic Director of the Teatro Real between 2001 Y 2005.

In this production, conceived as an ingenious follie organizée, everything moves, nothing is safe, including the scenery (completely white), that is permanently formed and transformed in front of the public, giving shelter to the different scenes of the opera.

Joy, "The salt shaker" and the extrovert character of the people of Seville is evoked throughout the entire work through a meticulous dramatic work developed by the protagonists (all of them great singers and excellent actors), the choir and the actor-dancers who participate in the opera, treated as an immense choreography in which the scenery and the props.

Although the time frame is not reflected explicitly, full scenography refers to the eighteenth century, reflecting mainly the time of instability in which the obscurantism of the Old regime gives way to the Enlightenment, peeking out the germ of the bourgeois revolution will emerge later.

The color and lighting become dramatic elements, more than escenográficos: the show is all he conceived in black and white, and only occurrences of Rosina, his rebellion and desire to live, introduce a color note to the scene, that Bartolo's servants immediately delete.

Finally, in “la tempesta” a multicolored rain breaks the bichrome of the scene giving way to a progressive emergence of colors as the end of the plot is unleashed.

Vitality, the bustle and spontaneity of the Andalusian "street people", with its sevillanas and its flamenco-inspired gestures, are fundamental in the choreographic design of the opera, full of surprises, irony and complicit winks at the viewer.
