A classic Italian opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Operantics is proudly presenting a lesser-known Mozart comedy entitled 'La Finta Giardiniera' ('The Pretend Garden-Girl') for a strictly limited season this October - 3 performances only. Tickets are now on sale!

Held at The Independent Theatre, ' La Finta Giardiniera' is a hilarious opera filled with beautiful music and a hilarious plot filled with mistaken identities and a very complicated love sextet!

La Finta Giardiniera, 'the disguised gardener', is the Countess Onesti, Violante, the heroine of the opera. She has been stabbed in a fit of jealous rage by her lover, the Count Belfiore, before the opera begins and is left for dead. Fortunately, she recovers and, calling herself Sandrina, goes into hiding at the house of the local Mayor. The Mayor immediately falls in love with her, which annoys his servant Serpetta, who is in love with him herself.

Serpetta is in turn loved by Sandrina's servant, Nardo (also pretending to be a gardener) and the plot starts to get rather complicated. It's not helped by the sudden arrival of the Mayor's niece, Arminda, who has dumped her lover, Ramiro, in order to marry a nobleman her uncle has found for her. Ramiro won't give up and follows Arminda to her uncle's house, but he hasn't got a chance, especially when her fiancÚ arrives. He is rich, handsome, and called Belfiore - but all is not quite as it seems!
