Rebellious servants, capricious lovers, cross-dressing farce and a happy ending: the fast paced action of this comic Baroque opera had all the ingredients to please the self-confessed ‘low-brow taste’ of an Austro-German prince, who commissioned Giuseppe Scarlatti for a piece to celebrate his son’s wedding. This is the opera’s first revival in modern times, and it takes place in the very same Baroque theatre, impeccably restored to its original glory, which hosted the first performance. With a cast of young singers drawn from Prague’s National Theatre and a stylish period-instrument ensemble, this vivid reconstruction will delight audiences as much today as it did the aristocratic guests at Ceský Krumlov in 1768.

Composer Giuseppe Scarlatti (1723-1777), was related to Alessandro and Domenico Scarlatti.

Comic opera performed in the Cesky Krumlov Theatre, where it was premiered in 1768.

Theatre is a fully restored Baroque theatre, complete with authentic stage machinery, props and scenery.

Performed by candlelight.

Gramophone Magazine

August 2013

“the theatre is the real star of the production...in truth nothing more seems necessary here than to sing and act with skill and wit, which the four Czech singers all manage very well...The orchestral playing and conducting are neat and tidy.”
