The Merchant of Venice at the Globe Theater in Rome

In the splendid atmosphere of the Villa Borghese’s Globe Theater, Shakespeare ‘The Mercantile of Venice’ leaves his mark.

The setting is in the late eighteenth century, full of Belle Epoque. The great director of Loredana Scaramella allows both Jewish Shylock (Carlo Ragone) and Mercante Antonio (Fausto Cabra) to advance their destiny with a remarkable interpretation.

On the stage dominates love and money, justice and discrimination; and the comedy turns into a drama.
It is the dynamism of the protagonists that allows the story to slip on the stage with great strength and intensity, and with a touch of sympathetic irony. In the middle of the Mercante Antonio swirling vortexing the 3,000 ducats, women and bets.
Will the pact made with Shylock to secure the loan to Bassanio be honored?
It will be Porzia (Sara Putignano) to save him from the clutches of Jewish wear.
An intelligent game of deceitful disguise will prevent the tragedy from happening.

Scheduled at the Globe Theater until September 10, 2017.

The commitment and tenacity of the artistic director Gigi Proietti is a guarantee of quality. Once again.

The 2017 season of the Silvano Toti Globe Theater – the only Elizabethan theater in Italy, created in 2003 thanks to the dedication of the Capitolina Administration and the Silvano Toti Foundation for a genius intuition by Gigi Proietti – is promoted by the Roma Cultural Education Advisory Board Capital with the production of Politeama srl and the organization and communication of Zètema Progetto Cultura. Again this year, the Globar will be active on show evenings.
