631 Steinbach Nutcracker Master Figaro
Hair-Artistes are usually Italians,
Spaniards or Frenchmen and when a barber here in Germany is particularly
good, then we call him a Figaro. It is the name we usually reserve for a
witty and loquacious barber who is always at the customers’ good
service and who always seems to know more than what’s in the
newspapers. (He is precisely the fellow that George Burns, the
grandfather of American comedy was referring to when he said: Too bad
that all the people who know how to run the country are too busy cutting
hair) This is still the way it is today in villages and in small towns
here in Germany.
Figaro got his name from the famous
comedic opera The Barber of Seville. composed by Rossini in 1816 and of
course from The Marriage of Figaro, composed by Mozart in 1786. These
are humorous and spirited musical works just bursting with vitality. Now
doesn’t our little Figaro look sharp and spiffy with his droll cap and
his artfully designed comb and mirror?!
