Il Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage)
May & June 2017
An 18th-century Italian comic opera by Domenico Cimarosa. You can hear the influence of Mozart in the music. Filled with comic intrigues and confusions, the story is about following your heart, and makes a perfect summer opera filled with special Pop-up Opera humour, sparkle and fun.
Its premiere was the occasion of the longest encore in operatic history; Leopold II was so delighted that he ordered supper served to the company and the entire opera repeated immediately after!
