This nice and rare opera buffa, which had fallen into oblivion, was revived in 1973 in the Dutch city of Zaanstad (the Saardam of the libretto) and now staged at Bergamo’s Donizetti Festival in a new critical edition made for the Donizetti Foundation by Alberto Sonzogni.
In the plot, the Tsar Peter the Great works incognito as a carpenter at the shipyard of Sardaam to acquire technical knowledge to carry back home. The fact that the Mayor is convinced that someone is the Tsar incognito gives rise to endless misunderstandings.
On the podium, the knowledgeable Roberto Rizzi Brignoli leads the orchestra of the Donizetti Opera, assisted by the internationally-renowned cinema director Davide Ferrario.
In the cast, Andrea Concetti (a successful artist who has sung throughout the world) is joined by singers who are emerging in the belcanto repertoire, such as Giorgio Caoduro, Juan Francisco Gatell, Irina Dubrovskaya and Aya Wakizono.
Available in CD, DVD and Bluray, with subtitles in Italian, English, German and French
