The theater in the city of Naples
Theatre in Naples is an important part of the daily life of the city and its ancient origins go back even to the Greeks and Romans. For centuries, opera has had a close relationship with the city of Naples and today this relationship is realised in a completely innovative way.
The opera in Naples: Musica a Palazzo
The Neapolitan theatre rediscovers a new way of experiencing the drama. Musica a Palazzo is the event, which at the Palazzo Medici Acquaviva in Naples, recreates the way of perceiving opera. Musica a Palazzo offers itinerant shows, as the entire opera represented moves from room to room in the building, transforming the various halls and bedrooms into a real ideal stage, where the historic boiserie, the frescoes and furnishings make up the scenography.
All the pathos of the work is directly transmitted to the viewer through live performance, which, unlike the theatre, you can almost touch and perceive every single and almost insignificant sound.
The possibility of breaking down, so easily, the wall of the so-called fourth wall, the one that usually alienates the viewer from the work, involves the public firsthand and becomes a scenographic expedient, unique in its kind, which makes this event unmissable. Musica a Palazzo, after being staged in the United States, staged La Traviata in the Royal Pavilion in Brighton in the United Kingdom where they received the honours of the overseas press by also winning the Argus Angel Award. It also triumphs works and shows also at the Trinity House in London and Postdam in Germany.
Now Musica a Palazzo arrives in Naples to stage La Traviata, Giuseppe Verdi's opera composed in three acts and taken from the novel, the lady of the Camellias by Alexander Dumas, and to make it even more beautiful, in the location of Palazzo Medici Acquaviva in via Toledo, a timeless work.
If you love theatre you cannot exempt yourself from living this exciting adventure, run to Naples and discover the magic of opera a Palazzo.
