HOC presents Georg Philipp Telemann's comic intermezzo Pimpinone. Fully titled "The Unequal Marriage Between Vespetta and Pimpinone" or "The Domineering Chambermaid," this 1725 mini-opera predates modern-day situation comedies. Vespetta (Italian for "little wasp") convinces the wealthy and slightly lecherous older gentleman, Pimpinone, to hire her as chambermaid and then fools him into marrying her.
