Objective: In Act 1, Part 1, the structure, story and characters of Barber of Seville (first performed in 1775) were inspired at least partly by the commedia dell'arte, a type of theatre that first appeared in Italy late in the 1600s. This type of drama spread throughout Europe and dominated theatre throughout the continent for several years. This lesson will discuss this type of theatre.
