Il signor Bruschino, ossia Il figlio per azzardo
based on the opera by Gioacchino Rossini

The two youths, Sofia and Florville, are in love. Their only desire is to finally be married. However, the girl's guardian, the stubborn Gaudenzio, envisages a far more advantageous match for Sofia. Which is when the mysterious Signor Bruschino steps into the picture, the guardian's candidate for her fiance, to ruin their plans. But will he? Everyone is talking about him, but who is he really? Who lies behind that disguise, and what kind of trials have to be faced before everyone can depart in happiness, or at least satisfaction?

Rossini's one-act piece is a perfect piece for an introduction to opera. It was a success from the very first moment. When audiences first saw and heard Il signor Bruschino, ossia Il figlio per azzardo, in Venice in 1813, they encountered a comic opera packed full of well-known characters, characteristic situations and subtle musical witticisms. Incidentally, the maestro Rossini held a particular affection for operatic farce: this work was the fifth piece in a series. Each of them could be performed by around half a dozen singers, who create theatrical entertainment in their portrayal of typical character troupes. They required a charming female soprano and a young tenor as her lover, around whom whirl comic figures that the couple struggle to comprehend. The genre itself encouraged the performers to improvise, as they also kept a keen eye on the events taking place in the auditorium. For every moment of the opera, the director Attila Toronykőy and his cast will show us that a witty farce could just as easily occur today as tomorrow or yesterday. Even in the Ice Age too, no doubt.

Before the performance, between 9.45 and 10.30, we will be running a free (and playful) interactive session for children entitled Tune-up. We look forward to welcoming both school groups and individual school-age youngsters attending the subsequent performance. Please register via csip@mupa.hu by midnight on the Wednesday before the performance, specifying the number of participating children and their ages. The activity is recommended for children aged 6 and over, and will take place with a minimum of six children.
