Bologna in the 1700s. Geronimo is a cranky older man with two daughters, Carolina and Elisetta. He also has a hearing problem and constantly misunderstands everything he’s told. Carolina has recently married Geronimo’s clerk, Paolino, without telling anyone because Geronimo would never have consented. To deal with Geronimo, Paolino has arranged a match between Elisetta and a wealthy nobleman, Count Robinson. Geronimo has always envied the nobility so the hope is that Elisetta’s engagement will soften the blow of Carolina’s marriage to Paolino. At first, the plan seems like it might actually work, but then Aunt Fidalma, Geronimo’s widowed sister, confesses that she has fallen in love with Paolino!
Shawnette Sulker, Carolina; Tonia D’Amelia, Elisetta; Sylvie Jensen, Fidalma; Michael Desnoyers, Paolino; Bojan Knezevic, Geronimo; and Ben Brady, Count Robinson.
