Rossini's first professional opera, La cambiale di matrimonio debuted in 1810, and heralded the arrival of a great operatic talent. (The title translates as The Marriage Contract.) In this operatic farce, true love is threatened when a visiting businessman attempts to win himself a wife as part of a contract with a miserly merchant. The merchant's daughter wants to marry for love, and the resulting negotiations lead to comic complications.

La cambiale will be performed by a combination of CU-Boulder students and professional Italian singers in conjunction with the Piccolo Festival Friuli Venezia Giulia. (The students will be reprising their roles from an August 2011 production of the same one-act as part of the Piccolo Festival in the Friuli region of Italy.) It will be preceded by an original operatic adaptation penned by Patrick Mason, Il Teatro del Friuli, a farcical look at the backstage life of operatic production.
