The fifth season for the artistic collaboration between Aterballetto and the Piccolo Teatro, which has by now become a veritable “residence”. In programme for this first appointment, three new performances by Philippe Kratz, “L’eco dell'acqua”, Eugenio Scigliano, “Lost Shadows”, and Johan Inger, “Bliss”.
The second appointment with Aterballetto includes the choreography by Michele Di Stefano (Leone d'Argento at the Venice Biennale) “Upper East Side”, the new production by Jiří Kylián “14'20” and “LEGO” by Giuseppe Spota, among the most interesting of Italian authors of the new generation.
Brecht and Weill, sixty years on: “The threepenny opera” staged by a modern-day artist, Damiano Michieletto, a director who is making his mark in opera and theatre, reshuffling the cards of tradition with often revealing results.
The sodality with the Compagnia Marionettistica Carlo Colla & Figli which every year enriches the Piccolo's programme with prose, opera and dance through the enchanting interpretations of the "wooden actors" is once again renewed. This year's summer appointment is one of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies, "Macbeth". 150 characters for a show which brings together the splendour and the sumptuousness of the most important of marionette shows.
"Casanova's Return to Venice", one of Arthur Schnitzler’s narrative masterpieces, adapted and staged by Federico Tiezzi, is the story of the aged adventurer (Sandro Lombardi), who dreams of returning to Venice but, at the cost of bitter delusions, is unable to renounce his unsubdued passions.
