Wolf-Ferrari’s intricate and witty ensemble piece was the opera that first brought its composer to international recognition, and was subsequently performed all over the world by many of the finest singers and conductors of the day. It concerns attempts by the ‘inquisitive ladies’ of the title to find out what actually goes on at their husbands’ ‘club’ and is packed with the kind of vocal virtuosity for which the current crop of Opera Course singers have shown particular flair.
The School welcomes back regular collaborators Stephen Barlow and Yannis Thavoris to direct and design, alongside conductor Mark Shanahan, following the success of last year’s Verdi’s Requiem.
