Chile's Javier Arrey performs Largo al factotum from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia, in concert four of the 2009 competition.

Figaro introduces himself, in this famous 'patter' aria. Not only is he the barber of Seville, with his well-stocked shop, but he is also the general factotum of the city. He is happy to run errands, arrange meetings and perform all kinds of services - as long as he gets paid for it.
