Paolantoni and Sarcinelli on August 3 at the Motta theater in Palmi. On the 18th the comedy of Cirilli


By John

A real triumph, sealed by over ten minutes of applause, inaugurated the 2023 Season of the “Motta” Theater in Palmi with the one-act play by Pietro Mascagni, Cavalleria Rusticana, which thrilled the large and attentive audience who flocked.

The verismo masterpiece that has seen lined up prominent names of the musical scene (Sonia Fortunato, Santuzza; Armaz Darashvili, Turiddu; Raffele Facciolà, Alfio; Irene Pisano, Lola; Antonella Arena, Lucia) together with two artistic ensembles of absolute prestige, the Coro Lirico Siciliano and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Calabria – conducted by Filippo Arlia – received unanimous approval by opening the summer festival of the Palmese open air theater which is preparing to consecrate itself as the open-air theater of reference in the musical, theatrical and operatic panorama of Calabria.

Precisely in view of the excellent outcome of the opening night, the Coro Lirico Siciliano, the promoter of the event, and the municipal administration have opted to open the doors of the city theater on the occasion of two of the events on the bill: on August 3rd with Francesco Paolantoni and Stefano Sarcinelli and on August 18th with Gabriele Cirillioffering citizens the opportunity to attend these two unmissable events for free.

Francesco Paolantoni and Stefano Sarcinelli with the show “Ancora?!” they will bring to life hilarious and amusing sketches and gags; new parodies (“Song Chef” reinterpretation of “MasterChef”) and new characters but also a dive into the past to “dust off” the classics of their career, also loved for their funny catchphrases.
Gabriele Cirilli, true showman of the television, cinematographic and theatrical scenes, will rage far and wide for two uninterrupted hours of pure entertainment that draw on everyday life with the best of his repertoire, from Tatiana to imitations, up to songwriting.

The season of the “Motta” Theater will continue until September with other unmissable appointments: on August 25th, a tribute to the dreamy and fascinating melodies of Ennio Morricone; on August 30 the irresistible Cabaret with Uccio De Santis; on August 31st a Journey through the songs of Battisti and Mogol with Carroccia and the Mogol himself and, finally, on September 7th “Nessun Dorma”, tenors in concert, lyrical recital dedicated to the operatic tradition and song.

Real event evenings for the “Motta” Theater in Palmi which breathes again of art and music for a season that will give smiles and emotions between symphonic, author pop and cabaret; a further success signed by Coro Lirico Siciliano, which continues the revolution and the constant work of cultural decentralization through the prestigious event of the Opera Festival of the Stone Theaters.

Season realized in partnership with the Municipality of Palmi as part of the integrated strategic project “Il Borgo ‘la Marinella’ di Palmi: A Theater on Landscapes” and in media partnership with RAI CALABRIA.

Shuttle service organized for all evenings by PPM – Palmi.
