The Fisherwomen
An opera in three acts
Libretto by CARLO GOLDONI Music by Joseph Haydn edited by H. C. ROBBINS LANDON
Cast in order of singing:
NETHERLANDS CHAMBER CHOIR
NETHERLANDS
CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Conducted by ALBERTO EREDE
Produced by WERNER DÃœGGELIN Recording of the Holland Festival Opera production In June, broadcast by courtesy of the Netherlands Radio Union.
This is the first production of the work since the premiere in 1770. ACT 1
Scene 1 The sea-coast
Scene 2 A shady grove
The autograph of this opera was discovered in Budapest and It has been reconstructed by the Haydn expert H. C. Robbins Landon. It was written at Esterhazy. for the wedding of the Prince's niece, produced there several times, and greatly applauded. Then. as now. a success of this kind would have imitators. It Is possible that Mozart knew the piece (though he certainly did not see a oeriormance). The same situation as in the finale of ' Le Pescatrici ' turns up again twenty years later In Mozart's ' Cosl fan tutte.'
Tradition has it that the situation
In Cost '-two male lovers In disguise. each trying to seduce the other's mistress — was based, however improbably, upon a real-Jife incident. It can now more reasonably be surmised that Mozart and his librettist da Ponte derived this situation from this comic libretto which Goldoni had written for Haydn.
