Also this year Estate Teatrale Veronese proposes the “Professione Spettacolo Verona” section, in support of the Veronese companies. Staged on August 24th, 2021 at the Roman Theatre “Il Teatro Comico” by Carlo Goldoni, co-produced by Teatro Scientifico-Teatro Laboratorio and six other theatres including Teatro Stabile del Veneto.
A work in three acts, the first of the 16 comedies that Carlo Goldoni wrote from 1750 for the Roman businessman Gerolamo Medebach, which is a metatheatrical text, that is, a theatre within the theatre, in the sign of the Goldonian Reformation of the 18th century.
The opera, staged for the first time in Milan, highlights Goldoni’s contempt for every precept derived from books and his love for real theatre, the living one that represents reality. On stage alongside Giulio Scarpati, the unforgettable protagonist of the series “Il medico in famiglia”, Grazia Capraro, Aristide Genovese, Vassilij Mangheras, Manuela Massimi, Solimano Pontarollo, Irene Silvestri, Roberto Vandelli and Anna Zago.
Directed by Eugenio Allegri, with the directing help of Alessia Donadio, the opera features scenes and costumes by Licia Lucchese and video art and sound by Alessandro Martinello.
