El matrimonio secreto (The Secret Marriage)
by Domenico Cimarosa

You couldn’t ask for an opera made more for Miami than El matrimonio secreto (The Secret Marriage) by Domenico Cimarosa. Not only is FGO’s version set among the world of the hard-working Cuban diaspora in the Miami Beach of the 1980s, but it will be performed in a specially commissioned Spanish translation from the original Italian.

The hilarious story revolves around the machinations of a wealthy entrepreneur who wishes to improve his social status by marrying off his daughters to men of high station. The only problem is the prettiest one is already secretly married to his secretary!

The action is set to Cimarosa’s delightful score, a cross between the music of his contemporary, W.A. Mozart, and Gioacchino Rossini’s madcap melodies. Without a doubt, this delicious comedy will delight your ear and tickle your funny bone.

Sung in Spanish with English and Spanish projected translations.

En Miami Beach en la década de 1980, Geronimo construye su negocio, el Hotel Paraiso. Ahora que tiene éxito, es hora de prestar más atención a su familia y casar a sus hijas. Intriga romántica, rivalidad entre hermanos y “mucha frivolidad” se unen en esta ópera de la época de Mozart, en una nueva traducción al español.

Cantada en español con traducciones proyectadas en ingles.
