  1. La serva padrona - Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

The story of a dominating young maid who runs her master's life and eventually tricks him into marrying her. This short and intimate comic opera or 'intermezzo' will be sung by members of the international opera company 'Gli Amici di Fritz' : Dartmoor based Peruvian-Italian coloratura soprano Claudia Alvarez Calderon and Italian bass Fulvio Bussano. The mute role of the other servant will be played by Italy-based Scottish actor Ruth Anne Henderson, who is also director of the opera. They will be accompanied by local pianist Alex Wilson and solo violinist Carina Vince.

In summer 2018 Claudia, Fulvio and Ruth Anne completed a successful Italian tour with Gli Amici di Fritz in which they performed La Serva Padrona at the castle of San Martino Alfieri in Asti and in the town of Piobesi Torinese in Piedmont. They are making their first tour of village halls in Dartmoor this autumn. The performance can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages, including young children and people who have never been to an opera. Like in Italy, this will be a family occasion with an informal atmosphere to come relax and have fun!
The running time is 50 minutes and it will be sung in Italian with translations available. There will also be a licensed bar.
