Festive premiere for HfK opera project “Il matrimonio segreto”

On February 15, 17 and 19, 2024, director Gregor Horres will bring the opera buffa “Il matrimonio segreto” (The Secret Marriage) by the Neapolitan Domenico Cimarosa to the stage in Speicher XI A. The work was originally launched in 1792 at the Vienna Hofburgtheater. Emperor Leopold II liked the opera so much that he requested a complete second performance as an encore. The turbulent plot revolves around the merchant Geronimo, who yearns for a noble title. His assistant Paolino introduces him to Count Robinson, who in turn is ready to marry Geronimo’s eldest daughter Elisetta. But then he falls in love with her younger sister Carolina at the bridal show, while her aunt definitely desires Paolino as her husband. The only thing that can help in this tangle is an escape plan. Because no one knows: Carolina and Paolino already have consumed the “secret marriage” that gives the title to the opera… Cimarosa’s music clearly refers back to Mozart and ahead to Rossini. At the HfK, Marco Comin takes over the musical direction. The ensemble consists of singers and the orchestra of the HfK Bremen. Stage/costumes: Heike Neugebauer. Tickets for the three performances are available in advance at Nordwestticket, in the Weser-Kurier building, as well as in area newspaper offices and at the box office. Price: 23 euros (reduced 15 euros).
