BWW Editorial: Opera Moderna, una storia di false partenze BWW Editorial: Opera Moderna, una storia di false partenze
by Francesco Vittorino on May 16, 2017 in Italy

Cinquant'anni fa debuttava al Sistina l'opera beat di Tito Schipa jr. 'THEN AN ALLEY', considerata il primo esperimento al mondo di Opera Rock. La scelta del titolo (che si traduce 'E poi una strada') fu quasi profetica, perche quello fu il primo passo di un cammino che porto alla rifondazione del genere operistico attraverso spettacoli come 'Tommy', 'Jesus Christ Superstar', 'Starmania', 'Notre-Dame de Paris' e tanti altri. Spettacoli anche molto diversi tra loro (opere rock, opere popolari, opere prog eccetera) accomunati pero da una drammaturgia che recupera quella del melodramma. Ci sarebbe quasi da commuoversi all'idea che un anniversario del genere cada a pochi giorni dal 450° compleanno di Monteverdi, uno dei padri fondatori del genere operistico classico, se non fosse per una cosa. Perche l'Opera Moderna fatica a prendere piede in Italia? (more...)

BWW Review: BWW Review: "Il principe ranocchio"; 10+ per la messa in scena, 3 per il testo
by Francesco Vittorino on April 24, 2017 in Italy

Venni a sapere dell'esistenza di un musical chiamato 'IL PRINCIPE RANOCCHIO' un paio di anni fa, e sul momento la cosa mi lascio indifferente, perche pensai si trattasse solo dell'ennesimo mockbuster disneyano (vedi a questo proposito l'articolo sul family-musical). Tuttavia il grande successo di pubblico di questo spettacolo, e il fatto che di recente abbia ricevuto ben due nomination agli Oscar italiani del Musical ('migliori musiche' e 'miglior spettacolo') mi ha incuriosito, cosi ho deciso di approfittare di una data al Teatro Nuovo di Milano per andarlo a vedere.
