Rita/Susanna's Secret


These two rare one-act comedies by Donizetti and Wolf-Ferrari will make for a delightful evening at the opera.

Rita (Two Men and a Woman) Gaetano Donizetti

Rita and her husband Peppe own an inn. Peppe, a sweet and timid man, is terrified of his tyrannical wife. When Gaspar, Rita’s first husband whom she believed drowned, comes back, he turns Rita and Peppe’s lives upside down.


Susanna’s Secret Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari

Continuing our Beyond Verdi series: Susanna has a secret she isn’t telling. Her husband, Count Gil, smelling tobacco on his wife’s clothes, is convinced that she is having an affair. He searches and searches, but can’t seem to catch her in the act. What could her secret be?
