Duration: 3 hours
A season is not a season at the Piccolo without the inevitable appointment with the jests, the duels and the laughter of the legendary Harlequin created sixty years ago by Giorgio Strehler, bringing life back to the tradition of Goldonian theatre.
Today, after having travelled the world, from Siberia to New Zealand, from Japan to the United States, and after having placed its protagonist (Ferruccio Soleri, in the title role since 1960) in the Guinness Book of Records for the most performances in the same role, Harlequinbrings its magic back to the stage in via Rovello, where it was born in the summer of 1947.
A manifestation of a way of making theatre, a training ground for actors – the students of our school have always become part of the great family of Harlequin in an ideal rite of passage with their predecessors – this play is a prodigy of energy and vitality which enthrals, excites and moves audiences of all ages and nationalities.
