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.
