Programme Note


Two adventurers, Crispin and Leandro, arrive at the town where the newly rich Polichinella lives. Leandro and Crispin lose no time in taking advantage of the community. At a party at the Widow Sirena’s, Leandro falls in love with Polichinella’s daughter, Silvia. The love affair triumphs because the community prevents justice from exerting its power. Marionetter was the first Swedish opera buffa with many of the characters derived from Commedia dell’arte.
