Il Mondo Della Luna
Crime might not pay, but in Joseph Haydn’s lighthearted Il Mondo Della Luna, phony expertise in astronomy does. The wealthy fool Buonafede visits the clever Ecclitico in his lab, where the pseudo-scholar woos him with fantastic tales of life on the moon. Up there, promises Ecclitico, young women lust after old men, and Smashing Pumpkins videos are filmed every day on the hour. Convinced by a trick telescope and a shadow puppet show, Buonafede offers money in exchange for the information and an eventual trip to the lunar surface, little-suspecting he is setting himself up for a grand fraud. For Ecclitico has designs on more than Buonafede’s wallet—the younger man hopes to win the hand of the elder’s beautiful daughter Clarice.<p>
Cincinnati Chamber Opera
Founded in 2012 by tenor Shawn Mlynek and soprano Autumn West, the Cincinnati Chamber Opera lives by their motto: opera for everyone. That means staging small scale works in intimate venues, showcasing passionate performances by young and up-and-coming artists, and creating accessible productions without skimping on the vibrato. The young company has already presented pieces ranging from popular dramas such as L'Orfeo to little-known comedies such as Il Mondo Della Luna. By casting a broad stylistic net and keeping their stage pictures simple, Cincinnati Chamber Opera aims to return the art form to its populist roots.
