Introduction

Adriano Banchieri. „La pazzia senile“

Adriano Banchieri’s 1598 madrigal comedy „La pazzia senile“ features the typical characters of a commedia dell’arte: old merchant Pantalone, talkative doctor Graziano, the not-so-clever servant Burattino, young lovers Doralice and Fulvio, and the domineering Lauretta. The concert-performance is in historically accurate costumes, full of pantomime and dance. A very funny story.
