Un Giorno di Regno

Melodramma giocoso in two acts by Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto by Felice Romani, based on the play Le Faux Stanislas by Alexandre Vincent Pineu-Duval

Sung in Italian with projected English translations


Verdi’s first comedic opera tells the story of Cavaliere di Belfiore, a wily rogue roped into impersonating the King of Poland abroad while the latter is engaged in reclaiming his throne. As the royal’s decoy, Belfiore finds himself at a double wedding and adopts the role of matchmaker to confound plans for arranged marriages and assist in the triumph of true love – including his own.

“a 100% delightful production.”
