the first European festival on creativity

2012 Programme

Event #22

Enzo Moscato

Toledo Suite. Concerto spettacolo

A performance in words, music, songs, theater and poetry by one of the most popular voices of contemporary Neapolitan culture. The meaning, the intensity, the power of the long theater career of Enzo Moscato, author, actor and singer, a leading personality of what has been called “the new Neapolitan drama”, will be displayed in a passionate tribute to the his neighborhood, Toledo, and to the city that makes it alive, Naples. A city of prostitutes, dreamers, madmen, constantly teetering between memory or nostalgia and a drive to rebel and seek redemption. Moscato acts and sings in an ancient language that he reinvents of the basis of the glorious theatrical tradition of Scarpetta, De Filippo, Viviani. Music and singing are intertwined wih poetry in a performance that “can do without anything, but not the voice” and will be appreciated both by scholars and ordinary spectators.
