It may happen – or perhaps it has already happened – that some characters from the old fairy tales get lost in this world full of voices, messages, which arrive at every moment of the day and night more to confuse than to inform or tell.
It can happen that these characters forget where they came from and cannot find their way back home.
But we have provided a home and a voice for the ancient protagonists of fairy tales. In Giovannin senza paura an actor and four musicians “armed” with flute, clarinet, trombone and percussion tell their stories of losing and finding themselves: The story of a wolf that looks very much like the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood, but is the wolf in another story that takes place on the shores of Lake Garda, or the story of an old woman who could be the witch in Hansel and Gretel, but is not, or the story of a certain Giovannin who, without any fear, has already appeared in many other stories and finds himself stronger and more cunning than ever in this one.
A narration and theatrical action with one actor and four instruments on stage, with original music by Gabrio Taglietti to give voice and home to ancient Italian fairy tales.
A co-production set up in collaboration with Oficina OCM Orchestra da Camera di Mantova, original music composed by Gabrio Taglietti, with the contribution of Fondazione Cariverona within the project “Fatti di Musica”.
