Event details

A Romanesque "coffee opera" based on Ermanno Wolf-Ferraris

«The secret of Susanna»

Ermanno Wolf-Ferraris (1876 - 1948) Intermezzo comico "Il segreto di Susanna" is an unknown jewel of operatic literature. The two-person play, which lasts a good 50 minutes, describes the jealousy and reconciliation of the married couple Gil and Susanna. In a slight modification of the original, Susanna secretly drinks Badilatti coffee and smokes cigarettes in the Romanesque Engadin version, whereupon the husband suspects a lover and makes scenes with his wife. Then, with the help of the servant Sante (silent role), things turn out to be much more harmless, and the couple swear eternal love to each other with wonderful music.
