About

Gaetano Donizetti’s comic opera L’aio nell’imbarazzo or A Tutor in a Jam! was greeted with wild enthusiasm at its Rome premiere in 1824 and became one of the composer’s first great successes both in Italy and abroad. Modelled on operas by Rossini but already displaying the psychological depths of Donizetti’s mature work, this is a narrative in which, shielded from female company, the overprotected sons of a strict Marquis are entrusted to their tutor Don Gregorio. Of course, everything unravels into emotional chaos in the best opera buffa tradition, with its universal themes of romance and social politics colourfully set in 2042.

“Vincenzo Milletarì conducted the Orchestra Donizetti Opera with competence and enthusiasm... Alex Esposito... a masterful stage animal...with perfect comic tempi, intelligently exaggerated grimaces, and an extraordinary bel canto style.” – Bachtrack

“[The show] is intelligent, fresh, colourful, fun, conducted with a frenetic rhythm and with the undeniable sense of theater that is typical of Micheli... Conductor Vincenzo Milletarì infused liveliness and a harmonious and brilliant flow into this work...” – iteatridellest.com

“The Esposito-Corbelli duo... dominated the two comic acts with charisma and theatrical magnetism. Esposito showed off that vocal verve, that authority full of expressions and subtleties... The baritone Alessandro Corbelli was the protagonist of a brilliant and flawless, winning performance.” – L’eco di Bergamo
