Work introduction

The Barber of Seville for children is a version of the work in one act, for 7 soloists and an actor. It lasts for about 75 minutes.

The scaled-down orchestral instrumentation follows the original score in every detail and delivers a rounded and harmonious sound in a new arrangement. Shortenings and strokes are inconspicuous, and all supporting melodies are preserved.
