CARLO COLLA AND SONS MARIONETTE COMPANY
MUSIC BY DOMENICO CIMAROSA
CONDUCTED BY MARCO SECO
A comedic opera with strings attached
Forget love triangle—Il matrimonio segreto (The Secret Marriage) comically intertwines the desires of a half dozen characters to form a love hexagon in 18th-century Bologna. Hijinks unfold to a bubbly score by Domenico Cimarosa—Mozart’s contemporary—performed by a chamber orchestra. Six members of the illustrious Westminster Choir voice the flirtatious characters, portrayed by handcrafted puppets from Milan’s charming Carlo Colla and Sons Marionette Company. Laugh along with this delightful opera as these playful personalities reveal their secrets.
Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
