Gabriel von Eisenstein is about to begin a prison sentence for a small indiscretion. Alfred, an opera singer is serenading Eisenstein's wife, Rosalinde (Joan Sutherland) outside the Eisenstein house. Adele, the maid has just received a letter from her sister, Ida, inviting her to Price Orlofsky's ball. Dr. Falke, preparing a surprise at the ball, convinces Eisenstein to come with him that night and delay his departure for jail until morning. Everyone departs for the ball in disguise...not before Alfred is mistaken for Eisenstein and dragged off to prison! The comic confusion of infidelity and "mistaken" identity is topped off by Dr. Falke's surprise, a little comedy he arranged called "The Bat's Revenge"

Preparing for their wedding, the valet Figaro learns from the maid Susanna that their philandering employer, Count Almaviva, has designs on her. In her boudoir, the Countess laments her husband's waning love but plots to chasten him, encouraged by Figaro and Susanna. Susanna leads the Count on with promises of a rendezvous in the garden. Alone later that day, Susanna rhapsodizes on her love for Figaro, but he, overhearing, thinks she means the Count. Almaviva chases Cherubino away and sends his wife, who he thinks is Susanna, to an arbor, to which he follows. By now Figaro understands the joke and, joining the fun, makes exaggerated love to Susanna in her Countess disguise. The Count returns, seeing, or so he thinks, Figaro with his wife. Outraged, he calls everyone to witness his judgment, but now the real Countess appears and reveals the ruse. Grasping the truth at last, the Count begs her pardon

With a cast like this you can't help falling in love all over again with The barber of Seville. The marvelous Hermann Prey is Figaro, a guy you wouldn't buy a used car from, but he's great to have on your side considering he can charm anyone out of anything. The sensational Marilyn Horne (Rosina) and Enrico Di Giuseppe (a love-struck Count Almaviva) immediately enlist him in their quest to foil Fernando Corena (Dr. Bartolo) so they can marry. With James Levine conducting, it's all just sensational

The Barber of Seville, or The Useless Precaution (Il barbiere di Siviglia, ossia L'inutile precauzione) is an opera buffa in two acts by Gioachino Rossini with a libretto (based on Pierre Beaumarchais's comedy Le Barbier de Séville) by Cesare Sterbini. The overture, first written for Aureliano in Palmira, is a famous example of Rossini's characteristic Italian style. The première (under the title Almaviva, or the Useless Precaution) took place on February 20, 1816, at the Teatro Argentina, Rome. Rossini's opera follows the first of the plays from the Figaro trilogy, by French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais, while Mozart's opera Le nozze di Figaro, composed 30 years earlier in 1786, is based on the second part of the Beaumarchais trilogy
