“Agamennone” tra Eschilo e Pasolini – Francesca Gabucci – Stratagemmi 23
The paper analyzes the Aeschylus’ Agamemnon staging by Pietro Conversano with Pier Paolo Pasolini’s translation, hosted in TAU theatrical season of Marche Italian region. The final performance, that took place at the roman amphitheater of Ancona, has been preceded by two big rehearsals: Conversano infact chooses a quite static acting style on the backdrop of an essential set, trying to emphasize the tragic speech by itself, the aeschylean words rewritten by Pasolini. All actors are immobile except Cassandra, when explodes in her prophetic mania. The musical
score written and performed by Alessandro Petrolati starts from natural rumors mixed with synthesizer and digital tools, providing a perfect sound carpet for actors’ voices. The paper also deals with the difficulty of making the chorus of the ancient tragedy in modern staging. As conclusion, a short interview with the director himself.
