The sounds of Haydn's opera The Apothecary echoed throughout Pridvordje's monastery last night enchanting the audience (very few seats were left unfilled). Originally titled Lo speziale, the three-act buffa was libretted by Carlo Goldoni and first performed to popular and critical acclaim at Eszterháza in the autumn of 1768.
The warm comedy develops around a love triangle between the poor apprentice Mengone, the rich and assured dandy Volpino, and the local apothecary's ward, Grilletta.
The Apothecary was delivered as a single-act opera last night.
