La Serva Padrona

Uberto, an elderly bachelor, is angry and impatient with his maidservant Serpina, because she has not brought him his chocolate today. Serpina has become so arrogant that she thinks she is the mistress of the household. Indeed, when Uberto calls for his hat, wig and coat, Serpina forbids him from leaving the house, adding that from then on he will have to obey her orders. This production will be overseen by UCT opera alumni and it is a buffo/comic opera. Young singers will showcase their developing talent in skills of stagecraft (singing and acting). The show kicks-off on Friday February 15 at Waterfront Theatre School. Tickets cost R150. Student and pensioner R100.
