The Good Friar
Composer:Martin Hennessy
Librettist:Mark Campbell
Synopsis
The Good Friar is adapted from one of the sexier and more irreverent tales in The Decameron by Boccaccio. In a series of six confessions a beautiful but married lady in the town, Flaminia, manipulates her confessor, The Friar, into arranging (unbeknownst to himself) a tryst between Flaminia and a certain younger gentleman, Vincenzo, to whom she has developed a considerable attraction.
