La Fenice in Venice will offer Il Segreto di Susanna with Bruno de Simone in the role of Il conte Gil


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.
