Nicollò Jommeli: La cantata e disfida di Don Trastullo
comic insermezzo in two acts

Don Trastullo is a very funny intermezzo in two acts composed by Niccolò Jommelli (1714-1774) for the Teatro della Pace in Rome. One of the greatest Neapolitan composers, he stages a story with a simple plot, according to the practice of the time: a deception carried out against an old braggart by a clever maid who wants to get married. The characters express themselves in a very witty and pithy way, with puns drawn from the inexhaustible vocabulary of the commedia dell’arte. Jommelli’s music is refined, lively, always able to support the rhythm of the action with its shifting pulsations. The work has achieved considerable acclaim and has been performed not only in Italian but also in German cities and will be heard in its Slovak premiere.
