New Chamber Opera presents: 

Baldassare Galuppi

La Diavolessa (The She-Devil)

Conducted by Steven Devine; Directed by Michael Burden

In a new edition by Michael Burden and translation by Simon Rees.


This opera is in three acts and was premiered in November 1755 at the Teatro San Samuele, Venice. It portrays a complicated love story involving a search for treasure with several suspects and many misunderstandings.  

The title (in English ‘The She-Devil’) refers to a couple of the characters who disguise themselves as devils in order to scare and force another couple into helping them find the treasure.

There are lively discussions about the role of women, class distinctions, and various other topics.
