Fondazione Teatro Due

New Arena Shakespeare at the Fondazione Teatro Due

Thursday 21 September 2017

It is with unhidden pride that we announce the opening of a brand new space at Fondazione Teatro Due: the Arena Shakespeare. Bringing together classical inspiration and modern technology, Arena Shakespeare is a unique place where an audience of 700 people can enjoy the best of theatre, dance, music and poetry in an open-air summer season. Including Arena Shakespeare, Fondazione Teatro Due now has 10 spaces that can be used for shows, rehearsals, and any kind of cultural event.

The first Arena Shakespeare Summer Season, which took place between end of June and end of July 2017, has been a complete and outstanding success. 5000 people came to see our productions, which included Sogno di una notte di mezza estate ("A Midsummer Night’s Dream" by William Shakespeare, with music by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, performed by Filarmonica Toscanini), I Persiani by Aeschylus, Le Rane by Aristophanes along with several poetry readings with international poets and a dance show (Italian premiere) by the coreographer Hervé Koubi. Both the audience and the critics reacted enthusiastically, and the opening of Arena Shakespeare granted a unique atmosphere that everyone was invited to enjoy. This is an important improvement to the cultural offer that Fondazione Teatro Due brings to the Italian theatre life. With its uninterrupted activity, Teatro Due is a real Cultural District.

We are already working on the next Summer Season of Arena Shakespeare, hoping that the success of our first season will be repeated and, hopefully, even improved.
