Notes & Reviews:
Giuseppe Nicolini (1762-1842) enjoyed wide popularity in his day: several of this work's arias became famous and were well known, particularly the duet between Giulietta and Monsieur Le Blau "Mi comanda il signor zio". Le due gemelle fits into the category of comic opera, as genre that reached its peak in the late 1700s with Cimarosa and Paisiello and that developed into "dramma giocoso" in the 1800s. Composed for the Teatro Valle, Rome carnival season of 1808, this is its first recording.

Due Gemelle was recorded in performance at the Teatro Municipale in Piacenza, April 28, 2012. Thank you, Bongiovanni, for such rarities in the more adventurous Italian provincial theaters. It has a plenty of dutiful singing.
Recording information: Teatro Municipale di Piacenza (04/28/2012).
