LIVE REGISTRATION of 16 February 2020 for the 10th Musical Season of the Cucinelli Theater


Today’s proposal takes us into the fruitful musical panorama of early 18th century Naples, a time when Johann Adolf Hasse, a German composer by birth, Italian by sensitivity, played a leading role. His affirmation is also linked to lucky eight interludes (1726-1730), a catalog opened by Larinda and Vanesio or the artisan gentleman, a small bourgeois comedy in a nutshell that exploits effective topoi of comic theater: Larinda, a modest girl origins, aims to marry the elderly and wealthy Vanesio, and through a wise game of disguises and some female cunning, the girl finally manages to achieve her goal.
The intermission is divided into three parts and is performed without interval, for a duration of around 65 minutes
Here the performance of last February 16 for the X Musical Season of the Cucinelli Theater:
