Read more about the opera Pimpinone

Telemann's rarely performed comic opera is given by Aarhus Sommeropera and the Danish Sinfonietta.

Premiered in Hamburg in 1725, it was given as light relief between acts of Handel's Tamerlano. A fun-packed entertainment, its full title, The Uneven Marriage Between Vespa and Pimpinone or The Dominating Chambermaid reveals that this intermezzo sits in direct contrast to the magnificent Baroque world of gods and aristocracy with its overindulgence in love, longing, pain and passion.

Tickets £20 (£15 concessions).

Running time two hours.

To be sung in a new translation by Christopher Cowell.
