Precious little gems, with artists of rare skill in locations that are always different yet always suitable for the occasion. Each time the discovery of authors, lyrical pieces not known to most, but with a great emotional and emotional impact. And what about the many talents who have come and gone during these four evenings, young people in love with their profession and who, through their voice and musical instruments, have conveyed their love for music, art and beauty to the spectators.
The final evening with “Le Muse – Tribute to Gabriele D’Annunzio” was a riot of emotions, the narrative voice of Antonella Carone transported those present into the foyer of the Petruzzelli Theater on a journey to discover the loves of the Vate. Unique, overwhelming, but at the same time frivolous loves. Loves that allowed the great poet to write, to tell of that love, of those loves.
A show built with meticulous attention to the texts of Enza Patrignani, which made us get to know these unique and overwhelming “loves” closely and what each of them inspired for the creation of D’Annunzio’s works. On stage, Sarah Allegrettafor the occasion in the dual role of opera singer and artistic director of the Valente Foundation, interpreted Elvira Natalia Fraternali (called Barbara), Maria Gravina Cruyllas (called Moricicca), Eleonora Duse (called Ghisola), Alessandra Starabba di Rudini (called Nike ), Giuseppina Giorgi Mancini (called Giusini), Nathalie de Goloubeff (called Donatella), Hevelin Scarpinelli Morasso (called Titti).
Her voice, the interpretation of Francesco Paolo Tosti’s songs, the clothes, meant that the women she interpreted had a voice, were able to shout their unique, overwhelming, tormented love to the world. Through each of them Sara Allegretta has allowed the public to love them, to know them, to be close to them, without ever diminishing the greatness of the poet and of her works, precious pearls in the Italian literary panorama. The duets with the baritone are full of pathos Charles Provenzanoaccompanied on the piano by Dario Novielli.
Nor is the choice of songs by Francesco Paolo Tosti and Erik Satie a coincidence, both exponents of music between the late 1800s and early 1900s, both voices outside the chorus of the musical panorama of the time.
An extraordinary evening, of great elegance, those present were able to savor and be transported to a world now far from us, yet so fascinating and still to be discovered and rediscovered. The next appointment with the Valente Foundation is on 10 December at 8.30 pm at the Regina Pacis Auditorium with the Terraross Christmas concert.
