Abstract: Concluding the recent Baroque festival, the Manoel Theatre, in collaboration with the lstituto ltaliano di Cultura, presented Pergolesi's stage masterpiece La Serva Padrona at the Manoel to a pretty numerous audience. I had seen this work just once before: it was at the erstwhile Radio City opera house back in the late 1950s. One's memories, no matter how youthful, perforce fade after more than 40 years but the amazing cheek and freshness of the saucy maid Serpina are not easily forgettable. They were successfully revived as far as I was concerned by Marcello Ancilotti, who also doubled as the bumbling Vespone, a mute part Servant and accomplice of Serpina's and privy to her scheming in bagging/ trapping her 'master' Uberto into marrying her.
