4-7 April. Conducted by Roberto Polastri, directed by Paul Curran.
Mirandolina by the Czechoslovakian composer Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959) is based on an Italian libretto inspired by the famous play “La Locandiera” by Carlo Goldoni. First staged in Prague on 17 May 1959, it is an enjoyable, refined work which gives prominence to the vivacity of the popular commedia dell’arte. The set is the work of Scottish director Paul Curran, while the conductor is Roberto Polastri, considered one of the most sensitive interpreters of the 20th-century repertoire.
