image for The Marriage of Farfalle to Debut at La Scala
"Pastaral Opera."

Milan Italy: An amazing musical find was announced today. A lost late 18th Century operatic work, "The Marriage of Farfalle," attributed to Luigi Angelo Marinara was found hidden behind a wall at Trattoria Alfredo.

The La Scala Opera House is planning a gala performance, following authentication of the music and libretto contained in the musical score.

The Marriage of Farfalle takes place in the Seville castle of Count Agnolotti. The Count has married the lovely Rotini, but their marriage has gone awry because of his contracting SPIRALINI. Farfalle has ceased being a barber and is now the Count's Pizza Chef. Farfalle is engaged to Strozzapreti, a maid to Countess Rotini.

Count Agnolotti, with substantial help from Farfalle, had previously enticed Rotini away from her curmudgeonly guardian and husband to-be Dr. Bucatini. Dr. Bucatini returns to seek revenge on Farfalle for taking Rotini away from him and employs the talents of the devious music-master, Don Gnocchetti.

The author wishes to humbly apologize to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Music, (1756-1791) and to Lorenzo da Ponte, Libretto, (1749-1838) for spoofing their masterful spoof opera "The Marriage of Figaro." Reference: The Marriage of Figaro, Linda Cantoni (2002).
