Opera. Music by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. Libretto by Gennaro Antonio Federico.

A rare recording of Pergolesi's second opera, a comic tale of tangled love in which three girls resist their arranged marriages in pursuit of the same young man. Rediscovered by conductor Riccardo Muti, this forgotten jewel sparkles in its 1989 period production. Unlocked from the archives of RAI television, this is a classic recording from one of the world's great opera houses.

Performers: Alessandro Corbelli (Marcaniello) ; Nuccia Focile (Ascanio) ; Amelia Felle (Nena) ; Bernadette Manca di Nissa (Nina) ; Luciana D'Intino (Luggrezia) ; Ezio Di Cesare (Carlo) ; Elizabeth Norberg-Schulz (Vannella) ; Nicoletta Curiel (Cardella) ; Bruno De Simone (Don Pietro) ; Luca Bonini (Lo schermidore) ; Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro alla Scala ; Riccardo Muti, conductor.

Recorded live in 1989 at Teatro alla Scala, Milan.

Sung in Italian, with English subtitles.
