Beyond the rainbow (1978)

Compositeur: Armando Trovaioli

Parolier: Leslie Bricusse

Librettiste: David Forrest

Généralités: Histoire, thèmes et particularités

Résumé

The play is a comedy set in a small Italian mountain village of San Crispino, where the young priest, Father Silvestro, receives a very unusual telephone call which causes chaos in the village, amongst the inhabitants - Clementina, who is madly in love with the priest, her father, the miserly mayor, Toto, the village simpleton and Consolation, a lady of somewhat doubtful virtue, who arrives there on a dowry fund-raising trip.

These unusual ingredients result in a musical show of refreshing and different entertainment.
