Giovanni Pergolesi's classic intermezzo receives a rollicking update in Cambridge University Opera Society's last show of the year.
The wealthy, miserly Uberto has had enough of waiting for his cup of hot chocolate. He is convinced his pretty young maid, Serpina, has completely forgotten her place and become mistress of his household. When he tries to get rid of her, however, he finds he has reckoned without the combination of her and mute servant Vespone, as they conspire to make his fears come true in the original opera buffa chaos of pratfalls, disguises and wonderful arias.
End May Week in the only proper fashion - to the sound of musical bickering.
