Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

The 2010 Jesi production is conscious of the complexity of “Flaminio” for all its seeming simplicity and cleverly exploits the suggestive milieu of the Teatro Valeria Moriconi, in particular its shape and relatively small scale. Without any attempt at realism, the production concentrates on establishing a kind of meta-theatrical relationship to this repertoire work which sets out to highlight the interweaving and overlayering of truth and fiction, passion and irony, tragedy and comedy. The theatrical narrative unravels – through a brilliant succession of dramatic and light-hearted moments – to its predictable happy ending. The result takes
Read more us a step closer towards finally rediscovering such masterpieces ofthe Neapolitan school of the 18th century.
