As for Sunday, the Bucharest National Opera House offers music lovers a piece that is very appreciated by the Romanian public since its first performance, as were all of Rossini's works. "The Barber of Seville" always had a full house. "The Romanians prefer Rossini's melody", wrote the journalist and writer Pantazi Ghica in 1874 in the "Contemporanul" Journal.
