Rossini’s “overture” – from French “opening” – is a brilliant example of how the intro music can sometimes become equally or more popular then the work itself! Many musicologists believe that Rossini has written this “overture” long before the actual opera “Barber of Seville”, and therefore contains none of the themes from the opera itself. The melody of this overture is so catchy and popular, it has been used in many films and cartoons around the world.
