Verdi’s first comedic opera tells the story of Cavaliere di Belfiore, a wily rogue roped into impersonating the King of Poland abroad while the latter is engaged in reclaiming his throne. As the royal’s decoy, Belfiore finds himself  at a double wedding and adopts the role of matchmaker to confound plans for arranged marriages and assist in the triumph of true love – including his own.
