A Grand Journey

Mistaken identity, sibling rivalry, and love at first sight are the comic themes of eighteen-year- old Alessandro Scarlatti’s first opera, premiered in Rome in 1679. Despite papal decree against such scandals as women on stage, and a ban on the church’s employment of theatre musicians, the public couldn’t resist the charms of this new, youthful voice of opera. Gli equivoci nel sembiante (Folly in Love) is an intimate comedy for four singers and orchestra that became a hit that toured throughout the regions of Italy for decades.

A Nota Bene Baroque Players, Gallery Players of Niagara and Capella Intima co-production.

Sheila Dietrich soprano
Vicki St. Pierre Mezzo Soprano
Bud Roach Tenor (and director)
