On stage with Roberto Herlitzka: Marina Sorrenti, Franca Abategiovanni, Carmen Barbieri, Giulia Odori, Rossella Pugliese. The night between three and June 4, 1798, Giacomo Casanova suspected of having to die. The Venetian gentleman, called to embody the living legend of seduction, is host for thirteen years in the castle of Dux, Bohemia, where the Earl of Waldestein awarded him the post of librarian of the palace. From the early hours of a sequence of clues that his intuition tidies seem to herald the approach of the fatal step. A butler announces the imminence of a party to celebrate the next day without giving any reasons. At the castle visitors are expected from all over Europe, it is necessary that Casanova cede his apartment to be intended for a more modest target. James has made seventy-three years a month earlier. From that day is sick; and now drags his suitcase through the vast corridors of the castle of Dux. The fever attacks him. Around midnight Casanova enters a room completely shrouded in darkness. The door closes behind him and despite his protests is no longer possible to reopen it. The gradual habituation of his eyes to the deep twilight reveals the silent presence of five who receive it congealed into a haunting stillness. James tries to scratch their silence. Initially, only one of the veiled ladies, called The Stranger, speaks to him, asking him who he is. Surrounded by the mystery of the inquisitorial singular creatures that surround him, denies being Casanova Casanova. The other women who agree to talk to him gradually produce a general atmosphere of the court of final judgment. But what are the alleged offenses? What will be the punishment? Why Casanova refuses to reveal and pronounce your name? Who's The Stranger, who tortured him and praised him with his silences and his words and he does not want to reveal his identity? Directed by Nadia Baldi moves on a rail dreamlike and timeless, building in a "no place or place of memory" female characters seemingly cold but full of sensuality and ambiguity. And 'the reality that gives witness to the imagination. Writing Roger Hood creates a poisonous, sweet, sincere chess game in which shine and move the pins of the identity of one of the men most discussed, loved and denigrated the eighteenth century. The comparison with the women in the back room of the castle of Dux triggers tenderness and autoironie while Casanova chases, in what could be the last appointment with his life, the idea of a self that is realized only through the harmonica sharing of the deep with each other and with others.
