LIRICO SOFA

Opera singing meets slapstick comedy and popular music on a yellow couch.

"The great mezzosoprano singer Tea Della Tresibonda is on tour, performing songs from her favourite classical authors: Rossini, Bizet and the beloved Mozart.

Being unable to carry on the whole Orchestra, she just took with her the essential: her enormous yellow couch, her shy handyman Toto and, of course, her unforgettable voice.

What starts as a virtous classical duo shortly becomes a vortex of disasters: sharp falls, faintings, chasing through the audience, absurd medleys, extemporary blues songs and wild dances."

A musical comedy that draws its style from the contemporary clown, the slapstick comedy of Buster Keaton, the dreamlike suggestions of the Nouveau Cirque.

Duration street show: 5 to 45 minutes (or several shorts)

Duration theatre show: 30 to 65 minutes

Created and performed by: Valentina Musolino and Eugenio Di Vito.
