Berwick Festival Opera: The Silken Ladder

Overview

With all the sparkle and froth of the very best comic operas, and a generous dose of mistaken identity, overheard secrets and tangled love affairs, Rossini’s early work is an irresistibly tuneful romance. By far the most famous opera composer of his day, his best known works The Barber of Seville and William Tell are still programmed regularly at the world’s major opera houses, and the overture to The Silken Ladder is a mainstay of the modern concert repertoire. All the comic essentials are here - secret trysts (aided and abetted by the ladder of the title), unwanted match-making, misplaced affections (and expectations!), and a bumbling servant trying his hardest to help, but making everything worse. This Berwick Festival Opera production is set in the Paris of the Roaring ‘20s : flappers and slappers, sequins and satin, and gents trying hard to be dapper, play out an escalating comedy of errors. Everything turns out alright in the end, though only just… This event takes place at Berwick Guildhall Sung in Italian, with printed translation and titles.
