Overview

Le Barbier de Séville ou la Précaution inutile est une comédie en quatre actes de Beaumarchais, représentée pour la première fois le 23 février 1775. C'est le premier volet d'une trilogie intitulée Le roman de la famille Almaviva. La comédie définitive comportera 4 actes et une grande part est réservée à la chanson.

Le deuxième volet, Le Mariage de Figaro, est écrit en 1778 et mis à la scène en 1784 seulement. Le troisième, L'Autre Tartuffe ou La Mère coupable, est achevé et joué en 1792.

En 1772, Beaumarchais présente aux comédiens italiens un premier Barbier de Séville, opéra comique, qui est refusé. La pièce, remaniée, est finalement jouée en 1775 par le Théâtre-Français. La première représentation déçoit par ses longueurs mais elle est élaguée en 5 jours et le Barbier de Séville connaît enfin un succès triomphal.

Le Barbier de Séville fut adapté à deux reprises pour l'opéra, d'abord par Paisiello en 1782 sous le titre Il barbiere di Siviglia, ovvero La precauzione inutile, puis par Gioachino Rossini en 1816 sous le titre Il barbiere di Siviglia.

----------

The Barber of Seville or the Useless Precaution (French: Le Barbier de Séville ou la Précaution inutile) is a French play by Pierre Beaumarchais, with original music by Antoine-Laurent Baudron. It was initially conceived as a comic opera, and was rejected as such in 1772 by the Comédie-Italienne. The play as it is now known was written in 1773, but, due to legal and political problems of the author, it was not performed until February 23, 1775, at the Comédie-Française in the Tuileries. It is the first play in a trilogy of which the other constituents are The Marriage of Figaro, and The Guilty Mother.

Though the play was poorly received at first, Beaumarchais worked some fast editing of the script, turning it into a roaring success after three days. The play's title might be a pun on Tirso de Molina's earlier play El Burlador de Sevilla (The Trickster of Seville). Mozart wrote a set of variations on one of its songs, "Je suis Lindor".

A generally small structure, the Asclepius cabin has frankly seen better days. The exterior is simply wooden, though painted a golden color that has lost most of it's sheen. The interior isn't much either. There are shelves lining each and every wall, piled high with medical books and tools. The few beds lying around in random location are generally centered around two mediocre statues, of Asclepius and his daughter Hygeia. It's rare to find a space to sit under all the medicines and bottles and phials lying precariously around.
