This is a charming tale of a little girl who finds herself magically transported in time to the opening night of Rossini's classic opera, The Barber of Seville. The first performance has just ended. The audience did not like the opera. Rossini, then at the beginning of what was to be a distinguished and prolific career, is thinking of giving up. The little girl helps convince Rossini to continue composing. This movie is another Composers' Special, a set of award-winning children's films presenting fictional but illustrative episodes in the lives of great composers.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to develop lesson plans, and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Rossini's Ghost.
In 1816 Rossini went to Rome to write operas for the audiences of that city. His first attempt was a failure, as was the second, "The Barber of Seville." However, when this opera was performed outside of Rome it was an immediate success. "The Barber of Seville" is still one of the most popular operas in the repertoire of modern opera companies.
The Learning Guide to the film Rossini's Ghost contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
