Join us for this fully staged opera farce, by our talented group of Spring 2024 Young Artists.

The Story:

La scala di seta, first performed at Teatro San Moisè, Venice on May 9, 1812, is based on L’Echelle de soie by Eugene Planard.

The beautiful Giulia, in defiance of her guardian, Dormont, has secretly married Dorvil. Every night, she lowers a silken ladder for him to climb up to her room, sometimes resulting in sticky situations when he doesn’t find his way back down in time. Meanwhile, Giulia’s guardian is arranging for her to marry Blansac, one of her own husband’s friends, but she and Dorvil are determined to trick Blansac into falling in love with her cousin Lucilla instead. Giulia’s servant, Germano, is brought in on the plan, despite his own hopes of perhaps winning Giulia’s favor, which he shares with several others in the household. Dino, Dormont’s brother, also has eyes for Giulia. Soon they all get caught up in an inevitably delicious web of confusion, misunderstandings, and hidden interlopers as Giulia and Dorvil try to protect their secret marriage.

Tickets can be purchased here.
