Libretto: Giuseppe Maria Foppa (on the basis of libretto by F. Planard written for the opera by P. Gaveauxt (1808)

THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CHAMBER OPERA FESTIVAL  State Opera and ballet theatre "Astana Opera" (Kazakhstan) 
In 1822, having met G. Rossini at the zenith of his fame, Beethoven said: "Never try to write anything else besides opera buffa, any other style will do violence against your nature." Long time before this, the 20-year-old composer, the future author of ‘Il Barbiere di Siviglia' created for the Teatro San Moisè in Venice a small operatic farsa comica in one act called 'La scala di seta' on the libretto by G. Foppa. In 'La scala di seta', the sparkling sense of humor and lively improvisational manner of the actors playing in the plot is combined with the virtuosity of Rossini's vocal and instrumental parts. Rossini praises the sensuality, enthusiasm and ingenuity of young lovers, whose relationship must remain as a secret until the time comes. 
The plot takes place in the XVIII century and unfolds around Giulia who secretly married her beloved Dorvil. The legitimate husband gets to his wife on the silk stairs, which she throws him out of the window. Giulia's guardian, old Dormont who is unaware of this marriage, tries to marry her to Blansac. Misunderstandings and confusions constantly jumble together, so in the end everything happily resolved.
