Georg Philipp Telemann’s baroque comic opera Pimpinone, set the framework to a series of similar works in the composer’s era and is presented in the form of “Pocket Opera”. Pimpinone tells the story of Vespetta, a spiteful tempered and manipulative maid who succeeds in dominating her rich bachelor employer, the old Pimpinone, once she marries him. The opera is presented in a light-stage production based on theatre-based improvisation and in direct audience address.
