Dr Ecclitico

(Haydn: Il mondo della luna). Ten. An astrologer in love with Clarice, daughter of Buonafede, who opposes the marriage. Together with his friends, Ecclitico transports Buonofede to ‘the moon’—actually Ecclitico's garden changed to look like a lunar landscape. Here Buonafede agrees to his daughter's marriage. Created (1777) probably by Guglielmo Jermoli (whose wife created Buonafede's maid Lisetta).
