OPERA IN 1 HOUR | LA SERVA PADRONA

OPERA IN 1 HOUR | LA SERVA PADRONA

Youngblood Arts and Culture Development and Biblioteek Productions are excited to bring you yet again another OPERA in 1 HOUR sponsored by the National Arts Council of South Africa (NAC).

This time we are collaborating with SA Operatunityi and bringing you La Serva Padrona on the 28th & 30th of March.

Uberto, an elderly bachelor, is angry and impatient with his maidservant Serpina, because she has not brought him his chocolate on that specific day. Serpina has become so arrogant that she thinks she is the mistress of the household. Indeed, when Uberto calls for his hat, wig and coat, Serpina forbids him from leaving the house, adding that from then on he will have to obey her orders. 

A delightful piece by Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. This production is overseen by the University of Cape Town opera alumni and it’s a buffo/comic opera.
