Today, the Seattle Opera Blog posted an article about Bel Canto Opera in which they said, “You can hear the Overture to Rossini’s Barber of Seville throughout the great Chuck Jones cartoon The Rabbit of Seville.” 

The article is fascinating reading for anyone who enjoys opera, music, and cartoons (particularly cartoons where opera had such an important impact on the action).  You may read the article by clicking here.
