“A tribute to opera tradition through Italian history”.
20 famous music pieces set in 20 different scenes of moments of the Italian history and art; Roman emperors, Renaissance, Venice culture, Italian unification process, World Wars, “dolce vita” icons, contemporary times and technology. A love story dream unifies the show, while the characters keep some of their connotations through the different epochs. 3D video installations complete the pictures, as the audience discovers new meanings and possibilities for renowned arias by Verdi, Donizetti, Puccini, Rondò Veneziano, Cilea, Respighi, Leoncavallo, to be performed in what is halfway between an opera and a musical. Battle scenes, seduction scenes, masks, slow motion, forward and rewind scenes for a cast of 16 actors and singers.
