Notes and Editorial Reviews

Pergolesi: Lo frate 'nnamorato
Musical comedy in three acts (1732)
Orchestra & Chorus of Teatro alla Scala, Conductor Riccardo Muti

A rare recording of Pergolesi's second opera, a comic and colourful tale of tangled love in which three girls resist their arranged marriages in pursuit of the same young man. Rediscovered by conductor Riccardo Muti, this forgotten jewel sparkles in its 1989 period production. Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
