About the play
Also known as ‘The Cantankerous Men’ (Venetian: I rusteghi), is a comedy by Carlo Goldoni. It was first performed at the San Luca theatre of Venice towards the end of the Carnival in 1760. It was published in 1762. The ‘Boors’ are four merchants of Venice, who represent the old, conservative, puritanical tradition of the Venetian middle classes, who are pitted against Venice’s “new frivolity”.
About Carlo Goldoni
Born to a prosperous middle-class family in Venice, Carlo Goldoni displayed a theatrical inclination from early childhood. Soon after the turn of his eighth birthday he was playing intently with toy puppet-theatres and composing his first theatrical plot.
Goldoni’s theatre output includes five tragedies, sixteen tragicomedies, one hundred and thirty-seven comedies, to which must be added, in the service of music, two sacred pieces, twenty entr’acte, thirteen dramas, forty-nine drammi giocosi, three farces and fifty-seven scenarios.
