The entirely made in Italy production includes the collaboration of some renowned excellences of the artistic panorama: the choreographies are handled by Debora Boccuniformer ballet director of the Teatro Sistina in Rome, the re-staging bears the signature of Mirko Guglielmiwhile on stage he stands out Michele Savoia – versatile Apulian actor winner of the David di Donatello dello Spectatore together with MeControTe for The mystery of the enchanted school – in the role of the protagonist of this contemporary fairy tale. A show that will attract the curiosity of the younger audience above all, thanks to the physical and digital sets that recreate the different settings of the world of Shrek, the holographic special effects and the famous 7 meter long Dragon (the largest in the world ever created for Shrek – The Musical) created by Marino Scenografie.
