2021 will open with Ópera de Tenerife’s flagship: Opera (e)Studio, the comprehensive training academy for young artists directed by Giulio Zappa, whose goal is to boost the professional development of participants, thus building an international source of young singers. The selected artists will perform on 18, 19, 20 and 21 March Il matrimonio segreto by Cimarosa, a co-production with the Teatro Regio di Parma. In addition to Zappa’s good job as director of the academy, this show will also feature Davide Levi as musical director while the stage director will be Roberto Catalano.
Dramma giocoso in two acts with music by composer Domenico Cimarosa and libretto in Italian by Giovanni Bertati, it is based on the play The Clandestine Marriage by George Colman the Elder and David Garrick. It was first performed on 7 February 1792 at the Hofburgtheater in Vienna with the presence of Emperor Leopoldo II who liked it so much that after providing dinner to the whole company, asked them to perform it again.
One of the most interesting and best-known operas by Cimarosa, a clear example of 18th century opera buffa, the plot is full of impossible situations, disguises and a happy end in which a rich merchant wishing to rise socially wants to marry off his two daughters to aristocrats. What he ignores is that one of his daughters has secretly married one of his employees. The imminent conflict and confusion come with a particularly original music, which stylistically stands between Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti.
