Summary This is a story of Gioachino Rossini (Joseph DiMambro), Italian composer noted for his operas, particularly his comic operas, of which "The Barber of Seville,"and "Cinderella"are among the best known. Of his later, larger-scale dramatic operas, the most widely heard is "William Tell."This film features music from "William Tell," The Barber of Seville" and "The Thieving Magpie." The story begins in a kitchen in Italy where little Reliana (Melissa Pirrera) helps her grandmother Rosalie (Frances Bay) make pasta sauce. As steam swirls magically through the kitchen, Rosalie argues with her oldest friend Martina (Lally Cadeau) and tells the story of an opera composer they once both knew...Soon, Reliana finds herself transported through time back to a theatre in Rome in 1816. She is invisible to everyone but the composer, Rossini. She watches in alarm as one of the singers puts a curse on the production and everything begins to go wrong. This was the year that "The Barber of Seville" had its disastrous premiere. Through the story, three women learn that friendship, like opera or great pasta sauce, requires nurturing, patience, and time.
