The mix of slapstick and wit in this Commedia dell’Arte show has something to amuse everyone. Re-wed: The Marriage of Flavio and Isabella is a Commedia dell’Arte tale about two young lovers and the assorted disasters that befall them on the day of their wedding.
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.
Presented by Corinna Di Niro, Antonio Fava, world expert of Commedia dell’Arte, and special guest, Martina Sechi, will perform the World Premiere of his new work, Pulcinella Furiouso. Adelaide’s leading Commedia dell’Arte troupe Commedia con Corinna will also perform their highly successful show, The Marriage of Flavio & Isabella.
