La Canterina is a comic opera about a young singer and her mother who deceive two suitors. Both men are in love with the young singer, Gasparina. One suitor is her (much older) voice teacher, Don Pelagio, and the other is the wealthy young Don Ottore.
Don Pelagio discovers that she has another lover and throws her out of the apartment that he had given her; but in the end, Gasparina wins over both men with her charm and beauty, and they both decide to accept her just as she is: selfish and materialistic. A wonderful night of entertainment and laughter. The opera is about 1 hour.
