Giovedì all'Opera - La scala di seta & Il signor Bruschino



Giovedì all'Opera - La scala di seta & Il signor Bruschino

Introduction by Deirdre O'Grady.

Film in Italian with English subtitles.


This evening’s screening is the charming double bill La scala di seta and Il Signor Bruschino were both composed by the twenty- year old Rossini for the Teatro San Moisè Venice. The first tells of a secret marriage musically communicated through four arias and four duets, with an ensemble in between. Updated for Pesaro by Damiano Micheletto to include a world of sophisticated condominiums and high technology.

The second offering is a drama of intrigue, pretence and mistaken identity scored in true commedia dell’Arte fashion. The one act comic farce is staged by the Florentine experimental theatre company Teatro Sotterraneo (Subterranean Theatre Company) and evolves as a tribute to the Rossini Opera Festival Pesaro.
