Arlequino

A favorite clown from Bergamo is the clever servant. He became “The Harlequin” in French opera. He wears patchwork very stylishly and makes having nothing seem enviable. Often referred to as “The Cat,” he is known as a stealthy acrobat and a clever innocent. His main lust is food. He is often asked to deliver messages that require more intelligence than he possesses to remember and deliver correctly. He is the servant of the braggart soldier Capitano Amarilla, and a suitor to Columbina.
