La Serva Padrona

La Serva Padrona Bulgaria

The first Cycle of the Young@Opera project

La Serva Padrona and its artists

 

When the Young@Opera project began and all the steps towards implementing a regional and international project were established, the Operosa team started auditioning for the young artists who were about to create this fun production.

 

Over one hundred and fifty entries were sent to Operosa, and young artists applying for participation in the project came from all over Europe and the world, even from Africa. After the applications were reviewed and evaluated, the team was finally formed and represented an interesting Balkan mix - just like the partnership of the project itself.

 

Selected artists with different levels of experience in opera came with equal excitement to the creation of this production: from Maestro to whom these were the first steps through opera, to singers who, through this work and work with their mentor - Maestro Predrag Gosta, learned more about Baroque interpretation and recitative; from opera-experienced instrumentalists to the conductor to whom this journey through basso has been a new experience; from the drama theatre actors to costume and stage innovation that is adaptable to different stages.

 

It turned out that the whole team fulfilled exactly what was the essence of the Young@Opera project - young and talented artists were hired, they brought young audiences to the theaters and everyone equally enjoyed the timeless beauty of opera art.

La Serva padrona, Giovanni Paisiello

La Serva Padrona, Đovani Paizijelo (La Serva Padrona Giovanni Paisiello) Uberto, stariji neženja, nestrpljiv je i ljut na svoju sluškinju Serpinu jer mu danas nije donela čokoladu. Serpina je postala tako arogantna da misli da je gospodarica domaćinstva. Zaista, kada Uberto zatraži svoj šešir, periku i kaput, Serpina mu zabranjuje da napusti kuću, dodajući da će od sada morati da se pridržava njenih naredbi. Uberto naredi Vesponeu da mu nađe mladu za ženidbu da bi se oslobodio Serpine. Serpina ubeđuje Vesponea da prevari Uberta da je oženi. Ona informiše Uberta da se udala za vojnika po imenu Tempesta. Napušta Ubertov dom i izvinjava se za svoje ponašanje. Vespone, prerušen kao Tempesta, stiže i bez reči, zahteva 4,000 kruna za miraz. Uberto odbija platiti takvu sumu. Tempesta mu preti da ili plati miraz ili da se oženi Serpinom. Uberto se konačno slaže da je oženi. Serpina i Vespone otkrivaju svoj trik; ali Uberto priznaje da je sve vreme voleo devojku. Naposletku, njih dvoje se venčavaju i Serpina će sada biti istinska gospodarica.
