Haydns, La Fedelta Premiata (Loyalty Rewarded) performed by Giving Voice Society. A light comedy of amorous mix-ups, this is a sparkling classical work by Haydn. Written in 1791, this opera is considered one of his very best. In the unlucky town of Cumae, faithful couples are sacrificed to a lake monster, making infidelity a good emotional life plan! After many amorous mix-ups involving local nobility and the High Priest, a solution is found, and the town returns to its happy monogamous ways.
For this years production, we have chosen to set the opera in India, which allows for the introduction of local touches, through costuming and dance, that will surely delight local audiences.
