The Italian Lesson by Hoiby and La Serva Padrona by Pergolesi

SEE EVENT DETAILS
at Caffe Delle Stelle (see times)
Opera on the Spot presents  a double bill of Lee Hoiby’s The Italian Lesson followed by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s La Serva Padrona (The Servant turned Mistress).  Based on the famous comedic monologue by Ruth Draper, The Italian Lesson offers a window into the chaotic life of a New York society matron.  To follow, we will present another comedic one-act opera, La Serva Padrona.  This Baroque “opera buffa” tells the story of a cunning maid and her aging master.  Although these two operas were made nearly two hundred years apart, they both creatively defy musical norms and expectations to audiences’ delight.  .  Just like any other Opera on the Spot performance, get ready for an evening of immersive, unconventional and electric opera like you’ve never heard before!  General admission is $20, students are $15.
This performance will be taking place at Italian Restaurant, Caffe Delle Stelle.  Dinner is not included in the ticket price, but dinner will be served off of the normal Delle Stelle menu.  If you do plan on eating, we recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the show to do so.  You may also just show up at the start of the concert time and order a glass of wine or desert!
