Experience an early work by the Italian master of shrewd levity: Gioachino Rossini's "The Happy Deception," written 210 years ago to enrapture the Venetian Carnival.
Rossini knew life, opera and people like few others. His operas were and are just right for hard times like they are now. War and love, betrayal and loyalty, deception and drudgery - we have all the life and all the wonderful music of the young Rossini in this opera, which is not yet as detached as the works of the old bon vivant. Tragic and burlesque elements alternate, intertwine, cross and intersect in our Frankfurt premiere in a new German translation.
