The Yellow Sofa: Glyndebourne Touring Opera
This is a story of love and loss, of betrayal and deception, of sex and a city, of wounded pride and attempted retribution – of plumply inviting sofa cushions.
Godofredo is naturally indolent, adequately successful in his working life and quite happy with his seemingly comfortable marriage to Ludovina.
When he discovers her in an extremely compromising position on his favourite yellow sofa with his business partner Machado, he doesn't know how to react but knows he must do something.
His honour has been off ended, he will have to challenge Machado to a duel, but he would much prefer life to return to normal.
