Arturo appeared in Italy, magic city of excellence, in 1957, but his career started in Paris, where, as the only quick change performer in the world, he re-invented and took back to life the lost art of Fregoli, becoming the main attraction of Paradis Latin. From this point on his career is relentless, in a continuos crescendo that defined him as an international level artist. He performed in the four corners of the World, in several languages and hundreds of theaters. Brachetti is the creator of the modern quick change performances and the greatest quick change artist in the world, with a portfolio of over 350 characters, over 100 played in a single show.
In 2000, France assigned him the Molière prize (the French Tony Award) as best theatrical actor; in 2010 he won the Lawrence Olivier Award, English prize; in 2011, in France again, he was nominated Commander of the Order for merit recognition by the French. Another award from the world of magic: in 2013 he becomes part of the Inner Magic Circle, the restricted group of the 300 most important maglician of all time, living and not.
During the evolution of his career he touched every aspect of the world of show making, being on the stage, behind the camera and recently behind the theater wings. Arturo as a director wisely mixes quick change, comedy, illusionism, lights and shadows games, stirring everything with magic and culture.
He has a strong connection with Italian culture and brings on the stage all its distinctive aspects: quality, love for “beauty”, taste and more than everything fantasy.
