"La Serva Padrona" was performed for the first time at the San Bartolomeo Theater in Naples on August 28, 1733, as an interlude in to the serious opera "Il Prigioner Superbo" by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi himself on a opera libretto by Gennaro Antonio Federico for the celebrations of Elisabetta Cristina di Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel (mother of the famous Maria Teresa of Austria).

The great success of this intermezzo sparked a few years after a dispute, known as the Querelle des bouffons, between the supporters of the traditional French opera, embodied in the style of Jean-Baptiste Lully and Jean-Philippe Rameau, against the supporters of the new funny opera Italian including the famous encyclopedist Jean Jacques Rousseau.
