PROSE DRAMA AT THE CREBERG 2018-09-06T13:49:28+02:00


At the Creberg Teatro, two key pieces in Western literature: Crime & Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, an adaptation by Sergio Rubini, who appears with Luigi lo Cascio; and Don Quijote, redrawn outside its stereotype but still in the seventeenth century, with Alessio Boni  (Quijote) and Serra Yilmaz (Sancho Panza), the emblematic actress of Ferzan Özpetek’s films.

At the centre of the other two shows are two women, two very different actresses: on the one hand the comic talent of Maria Amelia Monti as the detective Miss Marple, on the other, the intensity of Ottavia Piccolo in the role of Haifa, a woman fleeing from violence on the Balkan Route with her young granddaughter.

The Creberg Teatro Prose Season concludes with a twentieth-century classic: Sei personaggi in cerca d’autore by Luigi Pirandelllo, played by a fabulous cast which includes Eros Pagni (the Father) and Gaia Aprea (the Daughter), in an arrangement of videos which creates a sounding-board for the topic of meta-theatre.

From 18 to 21 JanuaryErmanna Montanari returns to Bergamo with her Teatro delle Albe, following the success of two seasons ago with Vita agli arresti di Aung San Suu Kyi: This time the Ravenna actress is the centre of attention, as always together with director Marco Martinelli. She will be a guest again in April as part of the Other Ways. In Va’ Pensiero, the Risorgimento themes are compared with today’s reality in Italy. With a mandatory sound track offered by famous Verdi arias, sung for the occasion by the young, all women choir from Bergamo, Gli Harmonici.

From 1 to 4 February, it will be the turn of Locandiera B&B with Laura Morante: t is a show full of humour and suspense, inspired by Goldoni’s masterpiece, but which also traces with surreal lightness today’s Italy. Text by Edoardo Erba, directed by Roberto Andò.

From 22 to 25 February,Il Servo (The Servant), rom the short novel by the British author Robin Maugham, directed by Andrea Renzi and Pier Paolo Sepe. Tells the story of power in a subtle and provocative way, through a relationship of domination and addiction between one man and another. On stage, Tony Laudadio, Andrea Renzi himself, Lino Musella, Emilia Scarpati Fanetti and Maria Lalla Fernandez.

The prose programme at the Creberg Teatro ends from 5 to 8 April with the enjoyable concert show by PaGAGnini. Four incredible musicians who enchant and involve the public with their virtuosity and hilarious gags.
