Rossini’s youthful farce sees a combination of events of French origins that is easier to see than it is to explain. The subject is similar to that of Cimarosa’s Il matrimonio segreto, and stars a certain Giulia who unrolls a staircase from her balcony, with the help of the shadows, to allow the young Dorvil who she has secretly married to come up to her room. Why silk though? Perhaps it was in the wait for speleological nylon ladders. The “girl’s” old tutor chooses another boyfriend for her, but she passes him on to her cousin. There is even a spying servant that confuses everyone. Jealousy, misunderstandings, narcissism, obstinacy, frisson, much climbing up and down the ladder, and the final blessing of the two couples. 

Michieletto’s staging, which has already been seen at the "Rossini Opera Festival", creates a high visual impact because it shows the acting from above as well, thanks to a mirror placed at an angle. This forces the actors to act in the midst of nothing at some points so they can attain the visual effect required.
