or: the maid turned mistress
A short opera by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi

June 28, 29 & 30, 2013

In Opera Mariposa's hilarious season finale, poor Uberto is at his wit's end. His maidservant Serpina is beautiful and clever… and so bossy, she’s starting to give HIM orders! He resolves to put his foot down once and for all - but Serpina knows just what her “master” is up to, and she's not going to stand it for a moment!

Enjoy Pergolesi's wildest comic romp, presented by the dynamic new opera company whose shows have been hailed as "a stroke of genius" (The Voice). The opera will be preceded each night by a concert of Handel favourites, including highlights from Rinaldo, Serse, Giulio Cesare and more!
