Figaro e la sua gran giornata / Figaro and His Great Day (1931) DVD5
In this delightful mixture of romance, comedy and music, the director turns back the wheel of time about sixty years and shows the audience an Italy of primitive railroads, high bicycles and the famous "dolce far niente." Taking the visit of a traveling opera company to a small town, where it is scheduled to present "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" and where one of the most important citizens is a retired opera singer, the scenario writer weaves a web of merry complications well calculated to keep the spectators in a happy mood.
Signorina Gloria is charming as the young lady willing to take the place of the missing prima donna; Signor Giachetti is excellent to the role of the one-time opera star eager to show the world that he is still a great Figaro, and the rest of the cast is competent.
