Silvano Toti Globe Theatre
As a tradition, summer in Rome brings one of the most anticipated theater seasons in the city. The Silvano Toti Globe Theater, the only Elisabeth theater in Italy, created in 2003 thanks to the dedication of Rome Administration and the Silvano Toti Foundation for a genius intuition by Gigi Proietti, welcomes its fond of public for a new season of great Shakespearean theater in the gardens of Villa Borghese.
The 2017 season is promoted by the Cultural Department of Roma Capitale with the production of Politeama srl and the organization and communication of Zètema Progetto Cultura. Even this year, the Globar will be active on the show evenings. The 2017 bill will also be accompanied by a series of special appointments: "Sons of Love", "Playing Shakespeare" and "Shakespeare's Song", an original Elizabethan concert with music and words.
At great demand, Gigi Proietti returns to stage as an actor with his acclaimed Edmund Kean. New outfits have also been planned, as Daniele Pecci's Enrico V and Daniele Salvo's Macbeth, and the great successes of recent seasons, from The dream of a midnight summer by Riccardo Cavallo arrived at the eleventh year of replicas at The Merchant of Venice by Loredana Scaramella, which debuted last year, up to Giuseppe Dipasquale's Troppu Trafficu, who returns for the second time at Globe after 8 years.
In addition, this year's tradition is still confirmed to host a show in the original language with Much ado about nothing co-produced with The Bedouin Shakespeare Company directed by Chris Pickles. There are also the Sons of Love, a journey among the most beautiful verses of William Shakespeare with the design and direction of Melania Giglio. Finally, the program is enriched with two special projects: Playing Shakespeare, designed by Loredana Scaramella, which will lead the audience to discover the stories hidden in the magical O Wood of the Globe and the journey between music and words in the Elizabethan theater with Pamela Villoresi in Shakespeare's song.
