Sunday 19 May – on the occasion of Stradomenica – at 4pm, the special visit to “La gazza ladra” as part of the “Masterpieces on stage” exhibition. Guide to Rossini’s works. The event is dedicated to the opera which was staged for the first time on 31 May 1817 at the Nuovo Regio Ducale Teatro alla Scala, marking Rossini’s return to Milan, with another incredible success after “La pietra del Paragone” of 1812 The subject of the opera is taken from the 1815 drama La Pie voleuse ou La Servante de Palaiseau by Théodore Badouin d’Aubigny and Louis-Charles Caigniez, later set to music by Rossini with a libretto by Giovanni Gherardini. According to critics, the score has a very high musical quality and an intertwining of intense drama typical of semi-serious opera, which combines comedy and tragedy, inspired by real news events. Set after the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars, in a peasant village near Paris, the plot tells of the servant Ninetta who, victim of slander and a judicial error, is unjustly convicted of stealing a silver fork during a party but the culprit was just a magpie. The opera became very popular until the end of the century, then revived in the mid-twentieth century, and inaugurated the first edition of the Rossini Opera Festival in 1980. The visit is included in the entrance ticket (reservations recommended). Info and tickets 0721 1922156 [email protected]
