Nicola Vaccai was an Italian composer, particularly of operas, and a singing teacher. Born at Tolentino, he grew up in Pesaro, and studied music there until his parents sent him to Rome to study law. Having no intention of becoming a lawyer, he took voice lessons and eventually studied counterpoint with Giuseppe Jannaconi, an important Roman composer. When Vaccai turned twenty one, he went to Naples and became a disciple of Paisiello, whoseBarber of Seville was considered a comic masterpiece until Rossini's Barber swept it from the stage 35 years later.
