A farcical new comic opera in English, The Secretary Turned CEO is a radical re-interpretation of Pergolesi's seminal comic opera of 1734, La Serva Padrona. Playing at Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2013 on August 10th and 11th. Book tickets here: tete-a-tete.org.uk/the-secretary-turned-ceo/
It's set in the offices of Soft Sheets Inc, creators of the world's smoothest toilet tissue, where sexual tension, gross incompetence and barely-contained chaos lurk just beneath the surface... With a bawdy new English libretto by Becca Marriott, and a guitar-based arrangement by Danyal Dhondy, The Secretary Turned CEO is a 45-minute farce inspired by classic sitcoms, pantomime and opera buffa.
