The unmissable event will be held at the historic Teatro Comunale del Maggio Fiorentino, in Via Solferino. A unique opportunity to stay at the 4-star Brunelleschi Hotel, located in Piazza Santa Elisabetta and distant little more than 1 Km from the theatre.
In the fantastic opera of “The Barber of Seville”, history, art and genius intertwine inexorably. These are the basic ingredients of the great opera buffa by Gioacchino Rossini. This triumph was staged for the first time on 20 February 1816, at the Teatro Argentina in Rome, receiving only boos, however. The pièce that later would become one of the symbols of national artistic greatness was based on the French comedy “Le barbier de Séville ou la précaution inutile” by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. The original title of the opera in two acts was “Almaviva” or “The Futile Precaution”, a mixture of spoken play with music of the genius from Pesaro and with a libretto by Cesare Sterbini.
The emotions of an opera able to imprint itself in the history of our Country goes perfectly with the elegance and the refinement of the Brunelleschi Hotel. The exclusive 4-star Hotel arises in the heart of Florence and it is ideal to fully enjoy a stay in a unique city. The magic and wonder will impress on your faces as soon as you will fling a window on this veritable jewel, and you will have in front of you, the Brunelleschi’s Dome, the Cathedral, Via dei Calzaioli or the charming Piazzetta del Giglio. The best way to give you a gift is to seize this extraordinary opportunity: a room at the Brunelleschi Hotel and the immortal “The Barber of Seville” in Florence.
