From ingenious disguises to sneaky dates; love is portrayed as a cliché in Opera Zuid's new double bill La scala di seta/Il signor Bruschino by the bel canto master Gioacchino Rossini.


Il signor Bruschino / La scala di seta (Mister Bruschino / The Silk Ladder) Gioachino Rossini

Marcos Darbyshire directs the two one-act plays and provides them with the necessary contemporary jokes. 'The composer really created gems, and that at the age of twenty'.

In La scala di seta, Dorvil is secretly married to Giulia and quietly climbs a silken ladder every night to see his bride. But Giulia's guardian has other ideas for her future and tries to marry her off. This causes comic twists.

Part of

In Il signor Bruschino, Florville uses cunning schemes to get permission to marry his beloved Sofia and not Mr. Bruschino junior, who Sofia's guardian has in mind as a marriage partner. But will he succeed? And although all the secret loves and devious schemes cause a lot of chaos and laughable commotion, everyone eventually declares love to the right person. A comical 'feel-good' performance not to be missed!
