Tunes with Toons: Claymation Barbiere!
During June’s focus upon “International Perspectives” we featured the following animated production. Incidentally, the latest episode of Community: Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas was a wicked fun claymation special! Bring on the full-length cartoon operas, I say!

In honor of “International Perspectives” this week’s cartoon fix comes from Russian animator Nataliya Dabizha. Perhaps you have seen some interesting interpretations of Rossini’s Il barbiere di siviglia, but have you ever seen it done in CLAYMATION??!!! Brilliant. Featuring The Welsh National Opera Orchestra with Maestro Gareth Jones, this Toy Story-esque take on Barbiere is sure to keep you smiling today.
