Venetian Duo Makes Its Stage Debut

Bellini Goldoni

Goldoni & Bellini: quintessential Venetians, two centuries apart. Together from June 21st until October, and again during the city’s famous Carnival. The venue is the Venetian Goldoni Theater; the event is the Goldoni Experience: Venetian Fresco – a medley and homage of classic plays by “the father of Italian comedy”. Directed by Giuseppe Emiliani for the Repertory Theater of Veneto, the best laughs from such classics as Una delle ultime sere di carnovale, Le massere, La putta onorata, Le donne gelose, Il Campiello and La bottega del caffè will be accompanied by the most joyful of cocktails: Bellini.
