The Secret Marriage archiveThe 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. First performed by Opera North in 1993, this production is as pacy and intelligent as you would expect from Jonathan Miller. It is revived by Mark Tinkler, with attractive eighteenth century sets and costumes, and a very funny English translation by Simon Rees. Sung in English. Running time 2 hours 30 minutes.
Performers Mary Nelson (Carolina), Natasha Jouhl (Elisetta), Wynne Evans (Paolino), Louise Mott (Fidalma), Henry Waddington (Geronimo).
Author Cimarosa. Company Opera North. Conductor Wyn Davies. Director Jonathan Miller (original director). Director Mark Tinkler (revival director). Design John Conklin. Costume Stephen Rodwell. Lighting Colin Smith. Translation Simon Rees.
