The Marriage Contract 2014
"La Cambiale di Matrimonio"
A Delightful Farce
Composed by Rossini for Venice when he was just 18, The Marriage Proposal lays the foundation for the comic characters and mucial moments that become his more famous opera The Barber of Seville just six years later.
Tobias Mill, a rich English merchant, agrees to marry his daughter Fanny to a Canadian, Mr Slook, whom he has never seen. Fanny, however, has given her heart to the young and impoverished Edward Milfort. The comedy develops when Slook, in colonial garb, with manners to suit, arrives and is confronted by Milfort, who is anxious to prevent the match, and by Mill, who is determined to enforce the contract.
