The Venetian Twins

Adaptation & lyrics by Nick Enright; Music by Terence Clarke


Where and When

McAulay Studio, Hong Kong Arts Centre
4-8 May 2010


The Venetian Twins is a hilarious musical comedy romp set in the eighteenth century, based on Carlo Goldini’s celebrated story of mistaken identity. The action involves identical twins Zanetto and Tonino, who were separated at birth. Zanetto is stupid and crass while Tonino is an honourable, wise gentleman. When the two of them, searching for love, descend upon the same town, somewhere between Verona and Jindyworobak, a ridiculous tale unfolds involving duels, betrayals, spats, arrests, a casket of jewels and death. This wonderful farce, with its Aussie humour and silly songs, has been entertaining audiences for over thirty years.
