Quote from Universität Mozarteum Salzburg:

Take: A bit of Mozart, a bit of Rossini, a bit of Puccini, a bit of Verdi, Venetian folklore, a pinch of modernism and entrust these ingredients to the composer Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari, born in Venice in 1876, who in his music-theatrical works also conveyed the banal everyday life in an inimitable way into truly great opera. For example in “Il Campiello” – a musical comedy based on a turbulent comedy by his compatriot Carlo Goldoni. First performed in 1936 at the Milan Scala and in Munich in the same year, the rarely performed buffo opera is now being rediscovered at the Mozarteum University. The Italian composer Wolf-Ferrari is thus returning to the house where he worked as a composition professor in the 1930s before fleeing the National Socialists to Switzerland.

Fun-loving ladies, imperious men, a young gigolo, a Neapolitan nobleman, the indispensable doctor and two real Italian mums (sung by two tenors) meet on a Venetian piazzetta (Campiello). There is wild partying, jealous nagging and beating and of course lots of love.
