1111Goldoni Experience -a picture of venice
until the 2nd of november
An close-knit cast of experienced, enthusiastic Venetian actors. A set design by unforgettable Emanuele Luzzati made up of a main backdrop and smaller painted canvas backdrops animated by Federico Cautero’s new visual and stage design, where the actors move in Stefano Nicolao’s costumes along the notes of Massimiliano Forza’s music and Fabio Valdemarin’s musical arrangement. A highly original show that combines several plays by Goldoni with a narrative structure allowing the audience to enter and exit the twists and turns of several plots following a unified path.
The play imagines the last day spent in Venice by Carlo Goldoni (the young Anzoletto) before leaving for France. It is the last day of the Carnival, the last day of festivities. Anzoletto looks on, a bemused spectator and initiator of the Carnival games, at the disguises, the pranks, the ploys of the maids, the courtships, the carousals, the vibrant vitality of Venice during the carnival that sparks amazement in the eyes of travellers from all corners of the world. Venice the cosmopolitan city, a city of coffee houses, games and entertainment but also a den of iniquity and deception. Venice city on water, where life and theatre are so inextricably blended as to make everything become possible. Venice during the festivities, animated by the “morbin”, the irresistible desire for fun. Small tableaus of everyday life at home or in “campo”, the Venetian square. Morsels of dialogue, scenes of deception and jealousy among lovers, gossip, rumours, tricks and misunderstandings: a true kaleidoscope rendered with elegance and zest. A showcase of Goldonian types and characters. A display of Goldoni’s subtle satire and his ability to reinvent the minutiae of everyday life, selecting and representing it in a keen, refined playwriting style.
A dutiful tribute by Venice and the Teatro Stabile del Veneto to an author so deeply attached to the “intimate sincerity of theatre” and to the “World’s truth” that he transformed the scene into a clear mirror where every face finds its truth and every character from his world and time finds his echo.oming Soon
