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

"In the prologue Time, Fortune and Cupid claim to have control of human destiny and argue against Human Frailty. Penelope laments her situation, in the long absence of her husband, and beset by suitors. In a short scene of dalliance between Melanto and Eurymachus it becomes clear that the latter hopes that Melanto will persuade Penelope to give in. Elsewhere the Phaeacians return Ulysses to his country and Neptune, with the approval of Jupiter, punishes them for disobeying him, turning them into a rock. Ulysses, waking alone on the coast, is helped by Minerva, disguised as a shepherd, who tells him that he is now in Ithaca, his homeland, and explains the situation in his house. She advises him to adopt the disguise of an old beggar and leaves in order to bring Telemachus back from Sparta. In the palace Melanto tries to persuade Penelope to accept one of the suitors, but she refuses. Eumaeus, expelled from the court by the intruders, is happy in his pastoral life, mocked by Irus. Ulysses assures him that his master is alive, but does not reveal his identity. In the second act Telemachus returns and Ulysses reveals his identity to him, while Penelope, in the palace, rejects the suitors one by one. Eumaeus tells her that Telemachus has returned and Ulysses may soon follow. The suitors determine to kill Telemachus but are deterred by an omen. Helped by Minerva, Ulysses comes to the palace, still as a beggar, and seeks leave to compete with the suitors in drawing the bow that was his and that the suitors cannot bend. He kills the suitors, but it is only in the course of the third act that Penelope is eventually convinced of his true identity, leading to a final love duet."--Www.naxos.com (as viewed on May 24, 2007)
