Theatre never goes on vacation in Naples! Perhaps it may change its location, as it prefers big and open spaces as the Ancient Pompeii.
From the 22 of June to the 23rd of July, the Teatro Grande of Pompeii is going to be the magnificent scenario of the first edition of “Pompeii Theatrum Mundi”.
In the program of the event five different plays from the past, at the origins of the Occidental culture:
On the 22nd of June, “Orestea (Agammenone and Coefore/Eumenidi)” by Eschilo, directed by Luca De Fusco, will represent the opening. Last representation is going to be held on the 25th of the same month.
From the 30th of June to the 2nd of July, “Prometeo” by Sofocle will premiere: on the stage the actor Luca Lazzareschi.
On the 5th and 6th of July “Antigone. Una storia africana” by Jean Anouilh will be played in French, with Italian subtitles. Both the plays are directed by Massimo Luconi.
The fourth event of the program will be “Le Baccanti” by Euripide, directed by Andrea De Rosa. The play is going on stage from the 13th to the 16th of July.
To end the one- month program, “Fedra” by Seneca, directed by Carlo Cerciello.
The program is the result of the collaboration between the Teatro Stabile of Naples/National Theatre and the Soprintendenza of Pompeii.
