THE UNBELIEVABLE STORY OF VISCOUNT MEDARDO DI TERRALBA

 

This work has been conceived for the students of a music-oriented lower secondary school. The theatrical text drew inspiration from “The Cloven Viscount” by Italo Calvino and handles the issues of this novel with levity and irony, adapting them to the needs and possibilities of children’s theatre.
The authors paid homage to famous theatrical works, getting from them ideas for dialogues and scenes. “The Imaginary Invalid” by Molière and “Pinocchio” by Carlo Collodi have been reference for the scene of the doctors, while “Cyrano” inspired the love scene. Other scenes, like the battle in act one, revive the naïve beauty of the Sicilian puppet theatre.
The presence of many characters allows the participation of many children, according to their individual skills.
Teachers of music, literature, art and technical topics have been involved to realize this work.
The included set of drawings is just a proposal to suggest an easy way to realize costumes and stages.
All music pieces have been conceived in comic style, suitable to a little orchestra of kids, who are new to the instrument education.
Heartfelt thanks to Pina Iornini for her precious contribution in writing the libretto and to Enzo Carpentieri for his beautiful sketches and drawings.
I would also like to thank Elvira Modugno, enlightened  headmistress of “T.Anardi” School of Scafati (Italy) and Monica Paciolla, a constant supporter of my music.
