Opera on the Spot presents a double bill of Lee Hoiby’s The Italian Lesson followed by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s La Serva Padrona ( or The Servant turned Mistress). Based on the famed character sketch by Ruth Draper, The Italian Lesson lyrically recounts the hectic day of a New York society matron in this one-woman opera. The comedy continues in La Serva Padrona between an elderly bachelor and his servant. Come enjoy this rare production of two hilarious one-act Italian operas that reveal a lighter, if not more eccentric side of this beautiful art form.
