ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

Don Checco is an opera in two acts composed by Nicola De Giosa to a libretto by Almerindo Spadetta. It premiered on 11 July 1850 at the Teatro Nuovo in Naples. Don Checco was De Giosa’s masterpiece and one of the last great successes in the history of Neapolitan opera buffa.

Set in a village inn near Naples, the opera’s story has the usual elements of the Neapolitan opera buffa genre—young lovers in difficulty, deceptions, mistaken identities, and a happy ending. Its protagonist and a guest at the inn is Don Checco Cerifoglio, an elderly gentleman deep in debt and fleeing the bailiff of the mysterious Count de Ridolfi. The opera had an initial run of 98 performances at the Teatro Nuovo and was regularly produced in numerous opera houses in Italy and abroad over the next four decades. After years of neglect, it was revived in 2014 in a co-production by the Teatro San Carlo in Naples and the Festival della Valle d’Itria in Martina Franca.
