This is a concert about storytelling.  Surprisingly, Rossini's Barber of Seville is not a story about a rabbit masquerading as a barber but a love story complete with disguises and mistaken identity and love triumphs in the end.  The overture was written for a different opera actually, "Aureliano in Palmira". Rossini borrowed it as he had run out of time.
