Minnesota Opera is going to be winding up their season with The Barber of Seville, an opera with some iconic moments and some famous spoofs (Bugs Bunny as the rabbit of Seville, for one).
This aria for the bass is slightly less well-known, but it never fails to grab an audience's attention: specifically, the moment where the patter really gets going, and you ask, How can he sing that fast? In Carlos Feller's performance, that happens about 3:38 into the clip (though the whole thing is worth watching).
