Compagnia Artemis Danza: Traviata
November 16 at 7:30 pm
Traviata is the first chapter of the three year project Corpo a Corpo Verdi – Trittico (2011/2013) coproduced by Verdi Festival and inspired by Giuseppe Verdi’s “popular trilogy”. It will be followed by Rigoletto, in 2012 and subsequently by the Entire Verdi’s Trilogy with the premiere of the last opera Trovatore in 2013. In her creations, Monica Casadei will follow “hand to hand” Verdi’s music and consequently she will be connected with the plot where the music is originated from. It’s a “hand to hand” with Traviata, and a “hand to hand” with Violetta’s story. Through the vigorous and energetic gestures that always characterize Monica Casadei’s language, the dancer’s body absorbs the passion, the distress, and the dramatic ending of Violetta’s and Alfredo’s story to then give them off as a lightning conductor.
