Synopsis: This rarely performed opera is a romantic comedy loosely based on Richard Sheridan's 1775 play, The Duenna. Ostensibly the plot concerns the trials of two pairs of lovers, Louisa and Antonio, and Clara and Ferdinand, but ultimately it is the fishmonger, Mendoza, who in the great tradition of the anti-hero, wins our empathy.
