Description: This 1830 Melodramma giocoso's title tells us of its unusual mixture of comic and serious elements, not one after the other, as was not uncommon in comic operas of the period, but within scenes as the composer uses Neapolitan parlando or opera seria styles or Spanish folklore (Mercadante uses motifs from various popular Spanish songs of the period) to characterize the various personae in this setting, in one act and 18 scenes, of Chapter 20 of Cervantes' magnum opus.

Ugo Guagilardo (bass), Domenico Colaianni (buffo bass), Laura Catrani (soprano), Ricardo Mirabelli (tenor), San Pietro a Majella Chorus, Naples, Czech Chamber Soloists, Brno; Antonino Fogliani.
