Opere in masseria

L’Opera in masseria” brings eighteenth-century music theatre in historic stately farms across the Valle d’Itria. We dedicate this space to the agile, juicy genre of intermezzo comico with L’ammalato immaginario by Leonardo Vinci (Strongoli 1690 – Naples 1730), a true star of the Neapolitan music school.

It was composed to be performed in between the acts of Francesco Silvani’s Ernelinda (Naples, Teatro di San Bartolomeo, 1726). L’ammalato immaginario stages the typical hypochondria à la Molière. Don Chilone is tricked into marrying Erighetta, a cunning little widow who aims at a second marriage to climb the social ladder, and takes advantage of the fears of the ageing co-protagonist.
