Although Marilyn Horne won’t be there, Rossini will!

It’s still not too¬† late to get tickets for North Carolina’s “Barber of Seville”, held on February 2 and 4th, held in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium. Although there are many performances of Barbiere in the United States, these will give audiences the experience of hearing the opera conducted by someone who truely understands (and loves) Rossini.

Jakob Lehmann – the President of the German Rossini Society – is known for his work with Teatro Nuovo in NYC and his memorable leadership of their Stabat Mater some years ago is still viewable on our site. If you plan on attending please contact American.Rossini.Society@gmail.com for information about plans for an informal gathering in connection with these performances.
