Free adaptation based on Othello (the work of) by Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio and by William Shakespeare with a various music repertoire

Othello’s room is directed by Maurizio Mistretta with Alberto Firrincieli on stage playing Harpsichord and piano and a vast video contribute by Valerio Morini.

Preface and Synopsis
There’s no doubt that much of Shakespeare’s work revolves around Italy. Italy offers a great source of inspiration and ideal settings for his masterpieces. Othello is one of them.                             
Shakespeare takes nearly the entire plot developed by Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio, a disciple of Boccaccio, set in the powerful Venice of his time, and converts it into one of the most important theatrical pieces of all times, given its varied and enduring themes of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance. The story revolves around its two central characters: Othello a Moorish general in the Venetian army and his unfaithful ensign, Iago.

THEATRE - The man with the flower in his mouth - D...
 
On the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936), this project wishes to be a tribute from two expatriates in the Far East to the Sicilian writer. The Man with the Flower in his Mouth (in Italian: L'Uomo dal Fiore in Bocca) is a 1922 play written by the Italian playwright Luigi Pirandello. A dialogue between a man aware of his incurable decease, and another one who lives without questioning death; a metaphor of the circle of life and death, personified through the deep and somehow mysterious connection between word and music. A man tries to savour all lasting moments of his life while the other character - replaced by a pianist with a minor trouble in the execution of his music –supports him, often inadvertently.
The original Pirandello play has been integrated with poems by Pier Paolo Pasolini and Jacques Prevert, while music repertoire includes classic authors such as Liszt, Chopin, Bach and original music by Alberto Firrincieli. The performance has been ideated and directed by Maurizio Mistretta, live music by Alberto Firrincieli.
