Visions

I always find it difficult to fix on screen what can only come alive during the uniqueness of a stage performance – despite the help of modern technology. Even more difficult is to summarize in few images the complexity of a show, which to me is a narrative journey made of coherent links, impossible to perceive in an extract.
Having warned you, here are some of the most significant examples of my theatrical activity of the recent years, which includes operatic repertoire, plays, musical theatre and some projects strongly connected with regional repertoire and young people’s theatre.
Enjoy the show!
