Prokofiev's comic opera is a piece rarely performed in Western Europe. Full of infectious melodies and wickedly funny characters. Set in Seville, and with a nod to the operas of Mozart, Rossini and Verdi amongst others, chaos and confusion reign in this tale of mistaken identities. Resourceful young lovers avoiding an arranged marriage; another maiden playing hard to get by hiding in a monastery; nocturnal elopements; a gold-digging chaperone and a surfeit of monks behaving badly... A rich, witty comedy of errors to relish..
