OperaPulse’s Aria of the Week – We can’t get enough of the great arias from Rossini’s Barber of Seville! La calunnia (The Slander), sung by the conniving Don Basilio, describes how the spread of gossip will eventually ruin Count Almaviva’s chance to win Rosina over Dr. Bartolo. Rossini’s music gives an unbelievable life to the drama set in the text… it may be nearly perfect!
