Feminine Shrewdness (performed in English) is the perfect opera for summer; a lighted-hearted look at the difficulties created for the orphan Bellina and her ward Don Romualdo by Bellina’s father’s impossible will; this provides her with a large dowery, but only if she should marry the crude and cowardly Don Gianpaolo Lasagna. All the action flows from attempts to rescue Bellina from her cruel fate and includes two characters who disguise themselves as Hussars, while wildly speaking broken German.
