A unique vaudeville adaptation of Pergolesi’s opera La Serva Padrona will come to the South Fork Natural History Museum on Monday August 27th at 7:00 pm. The free one-hour outdoor performance deemed by one critic “a cross between the Princess Bride and the Three Stooges”, is geared towards children and families.
The opera is a blend of Charlie Chaplin-esque charm with the musical touch of Pergolesi. The vaudeville style production is lighthearted and as one audience member said -echoing the sentiments of many-“it will have you smiling for days.” The dialogue is in English and the arias Italian, giving you the touch of class of an aria of yesteryear and a story with wit and charm that you won’t struggle to follow.
Performance features rising lyric soprano Ashley Bell, accomplished bass Tyler Putnam gifted Broadway actors Sal Cacciato and Kyle Nunn and is accompanied by Salome Chamber Orchestra.
The original production is created by Divaria Productions Inc. www.divariaproductions.com.
