The formula of the concert-show combines two different performances, a “watchable concert” and to a “listenable show”. After the experience of “Pierino e il lupo”, Brachetti and theRai Orchestra meet again to give life to this project and to show in a funny way the symphony repertoire. A new field of performance for Arturo Brachetti, quick change artist, director, actor and lover of innovation and cross-genre shows.
“Allegro, un po’ troppo” is made of two parts: in the first part the Orchestra plays “Peter and the Wolf”, composed by Sergej Prokof’ev, amazingly edited by Brachetti. Arturo changes into all the characters of the tale, captivating in a fantasy game an all-aged audience. Peter, the wolf, the bird, the grandpa, every character is brought into life in front of their eyes while shadows, sounds, quick changes, flying objects animate the stage.
In the second part a musical divertissement is proposed, with Brachetti as the star performer gone wild: as a living cartoon he tells the story of the great music with its styles and composers, with surprises and coupes de theatre, with an Orchestra leader version of Arturo… in pure “Brachetti style”.
On the block the “ghost director” Fabio Gurian, also score arranger of the show.
