Prosdocimo, a toiling poet searching for inspiration, finds his muse in the flirtatious Fiorilla, an advocate of free and unfettered love, and her devoted husband Geronio, who is more interested in fidelity and a quiet life. When a dashing Turkish stranger is added to the mix, the stage is set for a comedy with a deliciously layered plot full of games that go wrong and lessons to be learned. With a glittering musical score and wittily observed characters, this complex and subtle farce tells a tale of unrequieted love and confused identities. 

Martin Duncan's joyous 2011 production returns to Garsington, conducted by Rossini expert David Parry. Returning artists include Sarah Tynan (The Creation, 2016), Luciano Botelho, Quirijn de Lang and Katie Bray (L'italiana in Algeri, 2016) and Mark Stone (Robert Storch, Intermezzo, 2015).
