Alessandro Quarta
Monteverdi Tuscany
Castiglioncello del Trinoro
Arnalta Café

Luca Cervoni, Alessandro Quarta and Concerto Romano
present "Arnalta Café" at the Monteverdi Tuscany concert series

Arnalta Café is a “stand-up comedy” of nursemaids from different operas by 17th-century composers
such as Monteverdi, Cavalli, Melani, Cesti and Steffa.

A series of amusing and refined sketches, centered on what was one of the most beloved recurring characters
in the 17th-century opera:  the nursemaid “en travesti”.

Precursors of gender fluidity, these characters count among them
Arnalta, the most famous “nutrice” from Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea


Castiglioncello del Trinoro, Monteverdi Tuscany, October 2


Luca Cervoni (tenor)
