La serva padrona


La serva padrona (The Servant Turned Mistress) premiered in 1733 at Naples’ Teatro di San Bartolomeo as a pair of intermezzos between the acts of a grand serious opera: Il prigionier superbo by the same Pergolesi. The tiny plot employs two time-honoured comic characters. The wealthy Uberto (bass) is an old bachelor who lives alone with his perky maid Serpina (Little Snake, soprano) and the servant Vespone, a mute. After a row of intrigues and hefty arguments conveyed by five arias and two duets, Uberto finally agrees to marry Serpina. Building on similar precedents by Albinoni and Hasse, Pergolesi and his librettist Gennarantonio Federico created a small-scale masterpiece, an evergreen that stormed opera theatres worldwide up to the present day.
