Venetian Twins, The  

Venetian Twins, The $20.90 ex GST
$22.99 inc GST
This adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's 18th-century comedy The Venetian Twins quickly earned a reputation as one of the most boisterous, vibrant and irreverent works of Australian musical theatre following its initial season at the Sydney Opera House for the Nimrod Theatre Company in 1979.

Rooted firmly in Commedia dell'arte yet unashamedly influence by Kurt Weill, Donizetti and countless others in between, The Venetian Twins is an inspired piece of mayhem and musical pastiche.
