From January 23rd to February 4th, the Gran Teatro La Fenice of Venice will be staging a double bill programme consisting of Agenzia matrimoniale, by Robert Hazón, and Il segreto di Susanna, by Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari, two chamber operas that take an ironic look at marriage. In the latter, the Italian baritone Bruno de Simone will sing the role of Il Conte Gil. This one-act opera with libretto by Enrico Golisciana tells a simple story that ends up having amusing complications and leads to situations in which nothing is what it seems.
