Pacific MusicWorks presents a contemporary perspective on the 1733 one-act opera La serva padrona, considered to be the first example of opera buffa. In this upstairs/downstairs musical comedy rooted in the Italian tradition of commedia dell’arte, a wealthy bachelor realizes he has been outwitted by his servant. Paired with Pergolesi’s masterpiece are Mozart’s Musical Joke and a sparkling harpsichord concerto by Milanese composer Maria Teresa Agnesi Pinottini.
Amanda Forsythe, Douglas Williams, and John Patrick Lowrie star with Todd Williams on horn and Henry Lebedinsky on harpsichord.
