Franz Joseph Haydn’s 1777 comic sci-fi opera, The World of the Moon (Il mondo della luna)

Edited by H. C. Robbins Landon

In an English translation by Naomi Ornest

U.S. and Canadian agent for Baerenreiter-Verlag

 

Kurt-Alexander Zeller, director

The rich miser Buonafede refuses to allow his daughters to have their dowries and get married, but his neighbor, the astronomer Ecclitico, devises an elaborate scheme to free the girls by whisking Buonafede off to what he thinks is “the world of the Moon,” where customs are very different from those back home on Earth—old goats become young bucks, kitchen maids become empresses, and young ladies can marry whom they please!  But what will happen when Buonafede discovers the ruse?

 

Presented in two acts with one intermission

 

General Admission, Capacity Limited to 200

Presented by Clayton State University’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts
