Costume designer: Ilaria Papis
Soloists: Eva Corbetta, Gabriele Ribis
Go! Borderless Orchestra
Conductor: Eric Foster
The performance of the opera "The Imaginary Patient" by 18th-century composer Leonardo Vinci is a tribute to the 350th anniversary of Molière's death. The director and conductor are artists under 35: Filippo Rotondo (who graduated from the Verona Opera Academy) and Eric Foster (who graduated from the Alla Scala Theater Academy). The young artistic team will offer an original and innovative reading of the opera in the style of the TV serials that brought dramatic masterpieces to Italian homes in the 1950s and 1960s. The "Imaginary Patient" takes place in this case on a television set in the 1950s, during the filming of Molière's masterpiece, which further increases the comedy of Vinci's work.
