Summer Opera - Handel Il pastor fido

Tue 9th July 2019
The Warden's Garden, Holywell Street, OX1 3BN

Haydn's Il mondo della luna (The World on the Moon),  is an opera buffa to a libretto by Carlo Goldoni. The plot revolves around the efforts of three pairs of characters to marry the one each loves. As with many Goldoni dramas, the main protagonist is an egotistical but naive old man, in this case Bonafede. The decpetion of whom by the false astronomer, provides much of the comedy.
