Commedia con Corinna. Re-Wed: The Marriage of Flavio & Isabella – 2012 Adelaide Fringe

On the eve of the marriage between Flavio and Isabella, Flavio’s jealous ex-girlfriend, Filomena, interrupts the proceedings, with farcical results. As the servants Scapino and Arlecchinno make things worse with their bumbling antics, Isabella’s mother, Signora, cuckolds the father of the bride, the long-suffering Pantalone, with the swaggering Il Capitano. Filled with slapstick, slip-ups, and delightful silliness, ‘The Marriage of Flavio and Isabella’ is a high-energy romp performed in the ancient Roman art of Commedia dell’Arte.
