Pimpinone | Georg Philipp Telemann

A poor maid, the beautiful and shrewd Vespetta, seduces a rich man, the old but naive Pimpinone, who asks her to marry him and is troubled when he discovers her capricious and independent nature. A mixture of commedia dell’arte and comic opera, this small masterpiece is a treasure to discover.
