Le favole di Oscar Wilde

with Gabriele La Via

Ancient Theatre, Monday 16th 2021 @ 9.30 pm


Gabriele Lavia (ph Filippo Manzini)

Gabriele Lavia – a great master of the Italian theatre –  reads (in Italian) the fables of Oscar Wilde to an audience that has been away from the theaters perhaps too long.

Lavia wisely invites the audience to abandon themselves to fantastic stories which frequently allude to the contradictions of a morality that too often rules our life.

In Italy, Lavia has had a long career as a theatrical actor and director. He was the artistic co-director of the Teatro Eliseo of Rome (from 1980 to 1987), artistic director of the Teatro Stabile of Turin (from 1997 to the 2000) and artistic director of the Taormina Film Fest (in 1993).

He has directed six films, most of which he has written or co-written, including Il Principe di Homburg (1983), based on Heinrich von Kleist’s play Prinz Friedrich von Homburg, for which he won the Nastro d’Argento Best New Director Award, and Sensi (U.S. title: Evil Senses) (1986), an erotic thriller with Monica Guerritore, his wife at the time.
