Today : new opera by Giorgio Battistelli in Nancy

Today, the new opera by Giorgio Battistelli, Il Medico dei pazzi, will be performed for the first time in Nancy. The libretto by the composer is a free adaptation of Eduardo Scarpetta's play.

When all masks of the Neapolitan comedy are summoned in a frantic dance sweeping all the quirks of our living together... we admire the wit, we laugh and we are surprised to see how all these truths are part of another wild round, which is nothing more than our daily lives.
The cast includes Alessandro Luongo (Felice Sciosciammocca), Bruno Taddia (Cicillo), Giuseppe Talamo (Michelino), Bruno Pratico (Carlo), Maurizio Pace (Errico), Valeriu Caradja (Raffaele). Francesco Lanzillotta conducts and Carlos Wagner directs.

This 'Neapolitan musical action' is Battistelli's 30th stage work, following, among others Prova d'orchestra (1995), The Cenci (1997), Impressions d'Afrique (2000) and Richard III (2004).
