Music and Commedia dell’Arte

Accademia Strumentale Italiana
dir. Alberto Rasi

With a monologue made of several scenes, built on the life of Francesco Andreini - famous 16th century comedian - and on his successes in the world of theatre, Lorenzo Bassotto retraces the birth, the rise and the misfortune of the Commedia dell'Arte, as well as the origin of some of its best known characters.
Through historical jokes and pointed improvisations, he gives new life to characters now entered in contemporary culture, exploring their language and the modernity of their satire.
At the same time Alberto Rasi with Elena Bertuzzi and the Accademia Strumentale Italiana undertake a musical journey through the golden age of this theatrical form performing a repertoire as exhaustive as possible of the compositional forms of that age. The result will be a deep and funny concert-show, full of poetry and laughters.
The show, following the principles of pantomimic language, even if performed partly in italian, has the quality to be understood all over the world.
