2021 will open with Ópera de Tenerife's flagship: Opera (e)Studio, the comprehensive training academy for young artists directed by Giulio Zappa, which promotes the professional development of its participants, generating an international pool of talent. On 18, 19, 20 and 21 March, the selected artists will perform Cimarosa's Il matrimonio segreto, a co-production of Ópera de Tenerife with the Teatro Regio di Parma and the Teatro Massimo di Palermo. This show features stage direction by Roberto Catalano and musical direction by Davide Levi.
Dramma giocoso in two acts with music by the composer Domenico Cimarosa and libretto in Italian by Giovanni Bertati, based on the play The Clandestine Marriage by George Colman the Elder and David Garrick. The first performance took place on 7 February 1792 at the Hofburgtheater in Vienna in the presence of Emperor Leopold II, who liked it so much that after giving dinner to the whole company, he asked for a complete encore performance.
One of Cimarosa's most interesting and best-known operas, a clear example of 18th-century opera buffa, it contains a plot full of impossible situations, disguises and happy endings, in which a rich merchant who wants to rise socially intends to marry off his two daughters to men of the aristocracy. Unknown to the merchant is that one of his daughters has secretly married one of his employees. The whole impending conflict is spiced up with particularly original music, which stylistically falls somewhere between Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti.
*The performances on the 18th and 19th can be recorded with multi-camera.
