Description

Filmed at the Royal Opera House, this Barbiere, with its unbeatable cast and the directors' characteristic wit and intelligence, offers a unique dramatic twist: Joyce Di Donato, who had broken her leg on the opening night, went on with the show. As she said: 'Being trapped in the wheelchair was a quite literal way of demonstrating Rosina's huge desire to break free.'
