The Italian play “The servant of two masters” (Il Servitore di Due Padroni) by Carlo Goldoni at Kypria International Festival with the support of the Italian Embassy. Written in 1746 “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni (1707 – 1793) is one of his best-known works. It has been translated and adapted internationally numerous times. Still remains a fine example of its genre, the 18th century Italian Comedy- Commedia dell’arte!

As one of the most important representatives of “humanist theatre”, Goldoni explores through his work the human relationships and moral values related to logic and the “civilised human”. He condemns arrogance, intolerance, the abuse of power and the moral decay of a society which is based on hypocrisy and corruption.
Goldoni often combines the strengths and the energetic stock characters of Commedia dell’arte with his own wit and sincerity in order to create his unique comic style. “The Servant of Two Masters” is a caustic satire about love, passion, and the pursuit of happiness, but also about everyday survival.
