special event >Theater & Culture: An Italian Perspective

This year’s edition of the Italian Perspective series organized by the Italian Studies Program at Chapman University in association with Musco Center is a unique opportunity to learn about the influence of Italian theatrical culture throughout a variety of periods, styles, and genres. A program of original plenary lectures and live performances will provide intellectual insight, cultural breadth, and aesthetic experiences – a fascinating journey stimulating the mind and the heart. Presentations will reveal the interlaced development of the historical genesis and significance of iconic Italian theatrical traditions.

The event features Italianist Daniela Bini on the women in Italian Opera; A modern reinterpretation of Pirandello’s Six Characters written and directed by Professor Nick Gabriel, performed by alumni of Chapman’s Department of Theatre; A taste of Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo’s unique grammelot style by award-winning actor Matthias Martelli.
