Classic comedy, live music, fine dining– Wonderland’s staging of La Locandiera turns restaurants and castles across Ireland into 18th century Florentine Inns this Autumn-Winter 2009-10. The seductive innkeeper Mirandolina has every man at her feet – they cover her in diamonds and cower about her like puppy dogs.  Until ‘the declared enemy of Italian women’ - the Ulster Gentleman checks in.

 

Piqued, Mirandolina vows to vindicate her sex – by making him fall in love with her. Who will lose the night? The misogynist Gentleman or the seducing Locandiera?

 

‘La Locandiera’ is one of Italy’s most celebrated comedies. Wonderland’s sparkling period production includes a delicious dinner, accompanied with a generous helping of live Neapolitan arias and folk songs from Mirandolina and her admirers.
