BWW Reviews: Opera Theatre of St. Louis' Unique and Amusing Take on THE BARBER OF SEVILLEBWW Reviews: Opera Theatre of St. Louis' Unique and Amusing Take on THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
by Chris Gibson - May 28, 2015

I think I bring this up every time I write about an opera, but it's just so funny to me that most of my early exposure to the medium came through films that I saw on TV when I was kid. Whether it was an Our Gang short (the one where Alfalfa wants to give up crooning to become an opera singer), a Bugs Bunny cartoon (Carl Stallings frequently drew from famous classical works), or even something from Tom and Jerry, I was privy to melodies that would eventually work their way into my musical subconscious. That's just one of the reasons I found the Opera Theatre of St. Louis' production of THE BARBER OF SEVILLE so engaging. Add to that the fact that the brilliant, sexy, funny, and colorful films of Pedro Almodovar provided the inspiration for the look and feel of this particular presentation, and you have a match made in heaven. You should make it a point to catch all of the Opera Theatre's productions, because they're always innovative, and I especially recommend the wacky comic delights of composer Giochino Rossini's THE BARBER OF SEVILLE.

El pasado mes de diciembre tuve la oportunidad de asistir en el Playhouse Theatre de Londres a una de las funciones previas de la adaptación teatral musical de Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios. Aunque en Broadway no tuvo una carrera demasiado larga -dos únicos meses en cartel, sin contar el de previas-, los productores de Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown quieren probar si en el viejo continente se aprecia mejor el libreto de Jeffrey Lane con música y letras de David Yazbek, sobre una de las películas más célebres de Pedro Almodóvar.
