Notes & Reviews:

Wolf-Ferrari's comic opera 'La vedova scaltra' (The Cunning Widow), is among the works he based on plays by Goldoni. It matches closely the conventions of 18th-century opera buffa in its witty if skeptical look at the mechanisms governing the interplay of human relations. Four hopeful suitors (English, French Spanish and Italian) vie for the hand of Rosaura, the cunning widow of the title, who disguises herself to meet each wooer, eventually choosing only one who can demonstrate his sincerity. This production, filmed live at the Teatro La Fenice in February 2007 in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the birth of Goldoni in Venice, is the first to appear on DVD.
