The Italian Straw Hat

by Nino Rota

Sung in the original Italian with English surtitles.

What fun! While trying to get to his wedding, a young Parisian man is swept up in events that spiral hilariously out of control. The composer of iconic film scores such as The Godfather, Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet, and Fellini’s La dolce vita, La strada, and 8 ½ also wrote this charming and disarming farce that moves like the wind with bountiful bel canto melodies and a large, eccentric cast of characters.
