Finalmente in commercio il DVD del Convitato di Pietra di Tritto andato in scena al Teatro Verdi di Pisa nel 2015 pubblicato da Bongiovanni (con sottotitoli in italiano, se qualcuno dovesse avere problemi con il napoletano).
(io nel ruolo di Pulcinella)
“Sung in Italian, with both subtitles and notes in Italian and English. The plot is almost as traditional as the music, but one difference makes this Convitato di Pietra unusually interesting and unique: Don Giovanni’s servant is not Leporello but the archetype of the Neapolitan tradition of the Commedia dell’Arte, Pulcinella. It is fascinating to consider these two characters in tandem: both have a huge stage tradition behind them, yet could not be more different from each other. Pulcinella is extraordinarily comic, cunning and concrete, giving the librettist the opportunity to operate both inside and outside the plot, a device typical of the Commedia dell’Arte whereby the leading characters continually come out of the story to confide in the audience, then re-enter the plot. The character of Don Giovanni yields in importance to Pulcinella to such an extent that it is the latter who is truly the leading light of the opera.”
