The project to rediscover and relaunch the Italian baroque repertoire, triumphantly inaugurated in 2021 with La Calisto, a Venetian title by Francesco Cavalli, now lands on Neapolitan soil with Li zite ngalera: Bernardo Saddumene’s irresistible verses in the local dialect set to music by Leonardo Vinci. Disguises and misunderstandings make for engaging comedy while the felicitous settings and characters are entrusted to the talents of Leo Muscato, who recently won the hearts of the La Scala audience with a new Barbiere di Siviglia, and to the musical flair of a specialist of the calibre of Andrea Marcon. The cast is youthful, spontaneous, and Neapolitan mother-tongue, featuring Chiara Amarù, Francesca Pia Vitale, Francesca Aspromonte, and Marco Filippo Romano, Raffaele Pe, Filippo Mineccia.
