Description
The strong cast in this charming production of baroque composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's "commedia per musica" (a live 2010 recording of this Neapolitan farce from the Teatro Valeria Moriconi) is led by Italian mezzo-soprano Laura Polverelli, in the trouser role of Flaminio.

"An absolute triumph: fresh, genuinely amusing and touching."—International Record Review

"It really is extraordinary. It's even more delightful then that we have Ottavio Dantone and the Accademia Bizantina to bring out the sparkling brilliance and delicate beauty of music that is so full of life, vigour, wit and sensitivity…. The recording quality is superb, with a beautiful High Definition image and remarkably good sound quality."—Opera Journal

"All of these singers, while still young, seem to be more seasoned professionally, not only able to sing well but to take the farce about as far as it can go…. Polverelli … does not disappoint here."—Fanfare

"Opera buffa is as alive and dynamic as it was three centuries ago. We haven't had such an evening of enchantment and musical delicacies in years."—Il Giornale della Musica

"Compelling theatrical veracity, spirited lightness of invention, faithfulness to the text. And never an instant of boredom. Music that's theater; theater that lives through music."—La Stampa
