The most popular of Cimarosa's fifty or so comic operas, The Secret Marriage
received its second performance on the same night as the first. Leopold II enjoyed the opera so much, he gave the cast supper and commanded a full encore! Its wit and verve, which anticipate Rossini, have ensured that its popularity has never waned, and it is one of the few opere buffe
of the period that has stood the test of time. New Production. Sung in English with English supertitles.Performers Andrew Slater (Geronimo), Renate Arends (Elisetta), Rebecca Bottone (Carolina), Wendy Dawn Thompson (Fidalma), Quirijn de Lang (bass)), Matthew Garrett (Paolino).
