Pompeii Theatrum Mundi
Also this year, confirming a virtuous team game with another important cultural reality in the area will be the collaboration with Il Teatro Stabile di Napoli – Teatro Nazionale. This agreement will materialize with the co-production of 3 shows included in the Special Projects section of the festival and will be staged at the Teatro Grande in Pompeii as part of the “Pompeii Theatrum Mundi” review: on June 24. Jan Fabre will direct Resurrexit Cassandra with text by Ruggero Cappuccio, music by Stef Camil Karlens, and played by Sonia Bergamasco on July 1-3 at The Purgatory.
The night washes your mind, by Mario Luzi, is directed by Federico Tiezzi, and then the world premiere of La cerisaie/The cherry garden, by Anton Cechov, directed by Portuguese Tiago Rodrigues, starring Isabelle Huppert.
Once again, as has always happened in the editions directed by Ruggero Cappuccio, the image of the festival is entrusted to the creativity of Maestro Mimmo Paladino who, interpreting the identity and soul of the exhibition, has created a work of art in 7 paintings that will embellish the catalog and materials of the event.
