Comic opera by Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti about taming a wayward wife. The production was staged within the framework of the Opera Weekend Chamber Opera Festival.

If your wife is ready to make you a lasagna for a broken cup… Decisive and urgent intervention is needed! To tame an eternally dissatisfied and quarrelsome woman you need… a fierce duel. It is necessary to arrange a battle of two “titans” — a former and current husband. What will they fight for? For the right to “suffocate” this Fury! This comic Italian opera is a clear example of how to make a capricious wife loving and obedient.
