Orquesta Titular del Teatro Real (Orquesta Sinfónica de Madrid)

Teatro Real, Madrid. November 2007

WORLD PREMIERE RECORDING of this comic opera from a play by Carlo Goldini which had been absent from Madrid’s stages since 1792, having originally premiered in 1786.

In 1789 Mozart composed two ‘substitute arias’ for this opera which, given their musical superiority, have been inserted into this edition of the opera, sung by Véronique Gens

Director Irina Brook, on her debut at the Teatro Real, sets the action in modern times, mixing several styles to create a very bright and effective production.

Title literally translates as the Ruffian with the good heart. A brilliant libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, music which is both graceful and captivating and a first rate cast make this opera a welcome rediscovery and cements Dynamic’s collaboration with Teatro Real.
