|Joseph di Mambro||Rossini|
Many of the world's greatest musical compositions would never have been written if their composers had given up after numerous failures and criticisms. Rossini's Ghost is the magical story of Reliana, a little girl who is transported back in time to meet Gioacchino Antonio Rossini, one of the most successful opera composers of the 19th century. Rossini is at the point of giving up his music after the failure of his latest opera, "The Barber of Seville." Invisible to everyone except Rossini, Reliana helps three rivals in the opera become friends and gives Rossini the strength to keep trying. The sixth, and final, installment of HBO's composer series, this video is well produced, entertaining, and an asset to educational facilities. Recommended for ages nine to 12.
