Music & Word Festival: Haydn's Open Air Buffa Enchanted Audience, Atlantida & Guests Next Up
The sounds of Haydn's opera The Apothecary echoed throughout Pridvordje's monastery last night enchanting the audience (very few seats were left unfilled). Originally titled Lo speziale, the three-act buffa was libretted by Carlo Goldoni and first performed to popular and critical acclaim at Eszterháza in the autumn of 1768.
The warm comedy develops around a love triangle between the poor apprentice Mengone, the rich and assured dandy Volpino, and the local apothecary's ward, Grilletta.
The Apothecary was delivered as a single-act opera last night.
