Opera in Concert - “Folly in Love”

Mistaken identity, sibling rivalry, and love at first sight - these comic themes drive the eighteen-year-old Alessandro Scarlatti`s first opera, premiered in Rome, 1679. Despite papal decree against such scandals as women on stage, and a ban on the church`s employment of theatre musicians, the public couldn`t resist the charms of this new, youthful voice of opera. ``Gli equivoci nel sembiante``, an intimate comedy for four singers and orchestra, became a hit that toured throughout Italy.

Programme

Directed by Bud Roach, this performance is jointly produced by The Gallery Players of Niagara, Capella Intima and Nota Bene Baroque Players.
