Il XLVIII ciclo di spettacoli classici a Siracusa: deviazione per lavori in corso – Maddalena Giovannelli – Stratagemmi 22
This year the Festival of Classical Performances produced by the Inda Foundation has begun with two tragedies: Longhi’s Prometheus and Ca-lendas’ Bacchae. Inda’s trend seems to be that of an increasing attention for the contem-porary scene’s features: especially in Prometheus the performance of this classical drama is much closer to the present than in the Festival’s previ-ous editions. As much amazing is the staging of Aristophanes’ comedy by Roberta Torre: The Birds are not an archaeological tribute, but a keen reflection on our society. Longhi’s and Torre’s works mark a diversion, a change of route, which will take the Syracusan season to a new and more productive connection with the contemporary scene’s features and issues.
