Read more about the opera Pimpinone

This completely unknown, and very Italianate work by Telemann worked well as a curtain-raiser for a thoroughly enjoyable, and distinctly ribald, staging of Monteverdi's Ballo delle ingrate, after the dinner interval.

The Ledlanet summer season included a week-long residency by Scottish Opera for All - piano-accompanied stagings of La traviataMartha and Cinderella, as well as Ledlanet's own production of Telemann's Pimpinone coupled with Monteverdi's Ballo delle Ingrate. There was also an oratorio performance - Haydn's Creation. The Autumn schedule included another double bill - Pergolesi's Serva Padrona paired with Dido and Aeneas.
