La Canterina (by Joseph Haydn) it is a short comic opera that narrates the love intrigues and deceptions of Gasparina, a cunning singer who takes advantage of the admiration of two men to achieve her own goals.
With its humor and comically costumed characters, Haydn's work offers a playful take on romantic entanglements and ruthless ambitions in the world of music.
The Coffee Cantata (de J.S. Bach) it is a masterpiece that uses coffee as a backdrop to offer a fun and satirical representation of the society and daily life of its time.
It was probably written between 1732 and 1735 and, although it is classified as a cantata and was premiered in concert form, it is essentially a small comic opera that is currently performed on stage, as it combines musical elements from opera, choral music and instrumental music, creating a fun and entertaining work that, at the same time, offers a subtle criticism of the society of the time.
Through his witty text, written by Christian Friedrich Henrici, and his brilliant composition, Bach manages to portray social life and human behaviors with a unique blend of irony and musical charm.
