What's on in Teddington this October.
La Serva Padrona, performed by the highly acclaimed Villa In Canto operatic group, comes to Teddington.
Back after fantastic reviews, Verona's operatic group Villa In Canto, are returning to the Normansfield Theatre in Teddington to perform to perform La Serva Padrona and Popular Arias.
The work, a comedy written by 17th Century writer Pergolesi, translates as the "Maid as Mistress" and was originally written to be performed between acts of his other operas. It has continued to be popular because of its intimacy and plot-line which tells the story of a cunning maid and her ageing master.
"La serva pardona" broke the conventions of its day to offer a trim and tuneful series of scenes between its tale of a beautiful maid, Serpina, and her master, Uberto.
The Villa In Canto have been praised for reinvigorating opera and bringing it to new audiences due to the proximity of the performers to the viewer which helps to amplify the emotion and transform the drama into reality.
