Bethel College Operatic Irregulars will explore the obscure, miniature side of chamber opera this fall semester when they present, “Pimpinone, or the Unequal Marriage — a comic intermezzo” Friday, Sept. 10 and Saturday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center on Bethel’s campus.
The composer was the incredibly prolific Georg Philipp Telemann, who in his own day had a reputation higher than that of his friend Johann Sebastian Bach. "Pimpinone" has a cast of just two singers, and plays out in one hour. Come find out what made Telemann the most popular composer in Germany during the early 1700s.
The performance is free of charge. For more information, contact the music department at 574.807.7101.
