Opera Zuid: La Scala di Seta / Il Signor Bruschino

Studium Generale and Opera Zuid are teaming up to offer students a unique opportunity to go to the opera – at a quarter of the normal price! 

From ingenious disguises to secret dates; the clichés of love are presented with a twist in the double bill La scala di seta / Il signor Bruschino by bel canto grandmaster Gioacchino Rossini. In these two operas, the young Rossini first showed his grandiose Romantic style. He composed his witty, energetic music to the comic stories of Giuseppe Maria Foppa. 

Although all the secret loves and devious schemes in both one-act plays cause plenty of chaos and laughable commotion, everyone eventually declares their love to the right person. This also applies to the director Morcos Darbyshire, who says, ‘For me, these operas are a kind of love letter to Rossini himself… The composer created real gems, and that at the age of twenty’. A comical ‘feel-good’ performance not to be missed!

 The opera will be performed in Italian with Dutch and English surtitles. Prior to the opera, there will be an introduction in English at 18.30.
