Middelboe Chronicles, Part 44: The Barber of Seville

From one tale of a barber, in King March, to another tale of a barber, in Rossini’s opera The Barber of Seville (Operavox, 1995).

The animation’s opening scene, with a figure on his knees laying out the stage, seems to be a nod to the opening scene of a different Figaro opera, Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro. (Both operas are drawn from a trilogy of plays by Beaumarchais.)
