Il matrimonio segreto - The secret marriage


Make way for young people

Every year, there is a show that is entrusted to the younger generation of the Academy. For 2022, the choice has fallen on “The Secret Marriage” by Domenico Cimarosa, a playful drama that came to success in 1792. The plot of the play is this: to climb up in ranks, the wealthy merchant from Bologna, Geronimo wants to give his daughter Elisetta in marriage to a nobleman. He does not know that his youngest daughter, Carolina, has already secretly married one of Geronimo’s farmhands, Paolino. The two have kept their marriage a secret because of their social differences. To find out how the story plays out and other interesting facts about the opera, an hour before the start of each show there is an introductory lecture given by Lina Püschel.
