“Tarantella d’amore”. Concert featuring traditional dances and romantic serenades.

Sunday 30 November
Explanada de Expo Guadalajara
21.00
Tarantella d'Amore is a show entirely dedicated to Italy’s traditional dances and love songs: saltarello, ballarella, pizzica, tammurriata and above all the tarantella, the template for many of Italy’s regional musical traditions. At the centre of the stage Ambrogio Sparagna conducts an orchestra of traditional instruments such as barrel organs, zampogne (bagpipes) and tambourines. He jokes with the audience and teases the musicians, glowering fiercely at them and ordering them to dance and run around in traditional Italian festive style.

 

TEATRO POTLACH – FELLINIANA

Monday 1 December
Explanada de Expo Guadalajara
21.00
As though in an imaginary film set, some of the most famous characters from the films of Federico Fellini appear and come to life again. From the world of music-hall in “Luci del varietà” (Variety Lights), two strolling players perform some of the most famous sketches from traditional variety theatre. Next, “Lo sceicco bianco” (The White Sheik), the famous comic-book character played by Alberto Sordi, appears from a high swing in his exotically stylish white costume to seduce the naïve bride, an avid reader of romantic picture-stories. And then to the magical world of the circus with the sparkling White Clown and the legendary Frou Frou from “Clowns”.

 

COMPAGNIA FIGLI D’ARTE CUTICCHIO

The “Figli d’Arte Cuticchio” Association continues and renews an old tradition started in 1933 when Giacomo Cuticchio founded the first “Puppet Theatre” in Palermo. There, with the help of his wife and seven children, he presented tales of the paladins of France and organised special performances ranging from tales of saints and brigands to Shakespearian drama.

 

ACCADEMIA DEGLI SFACCENDATI. “AT THE OPERA”
Giuseppe Verdi and Italy’s opera composers
Monday 1 December
Capilla del Museo Regional de Guadalajara
19.00
A homage to Giuseppe Verdi, whose compositions will be compared with those of other Italian opera composers from the same period in a performance of arias and symphonies from the opera repertoire transcribed for a wind ensemble with piano. This chamber music approach manages to convey all the orchestral colour and resonance of the originals, accompanying a singer who is one of the most sensitive and technically gifted in opera today.

 

STEFANO SCARFONE AND HIS BAND
Jazz-rock with a Mediterranean flavour

Tuesday 2 December
Explanada de Expo Guadalajara
21.00
Stefano Scarfone, a Roman composer, producer and guitarist, has created hundreds of TV, film and advertising productions. He has won important awards, including the Mariano Romiti prize for musical composition and the Key Award (the advertising “Oscar”). In Guadalajara he will be presenting “Estrella”, an almost exclusively instrumental piece that takes the audience on a journey rich in Mediterranean scents and sensations.

 

ARTEMIS DANZA / MONICA CASADEI
Latin America. Trilogy

Tuesday 2 December
Teatro Diana
21.00
Latin America. Trilogy was created from a need to create a new synthesis of human and creative experience by creating relationships between its respective artistic expressions, with excerpts from the creations Mexica.Collapse, Cuba 2006 and Brasil Pass. For Guadalajara’s International Book Fair, choreographer Monica Casadei has created a new programme in homage to the host country. What marks this work out from others is the combination of a personal and subjective viewpoint, at times curious, at times amused, at times struck and moved by the complexity and vitality of the world of Latin America.

 

LUDOVICO EINAUDI
Piano Solo

Wednesday 3 December
Teatro Diana
21.00
Composer and pianist, Ludovico Einaudi has for years been developing his musical research around “instrumental song” by applying his cultivated approach to the themes and forms of traditional music. And perhaps this is a legacy of the period he spent “in the workshop” with Luciano Berio. Wave-like melodies in constant motion, with sudden accelerations and equally abrupt pauses, have never been so joyful and positive.

 

PFM – PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI
Italy’s most famous progressive rock band

Wednesday 3 December
Explanada de Expo Guadalajara
21.00
PFM, or Premiata Forneria Marconi, is one of Italy’s most internationally famous rock groups, the only one to have climbed the Billboard charts in the United States. PFM developed from I Quelli, a 1960s beat group. At the end of 1970 Franz Di Cioccio, Franco Mussida, Flavio Premoli and Giorgio Piazza (later replaced by Patrick Djivas), along with Mauro Pagani – practically a one-man band – set up Premiata Forneria Marconi. The name was later shortened to PFM.

DANIELE SILVESTRI
Explanada de Expo Guadalajara
21:00
Daniele Silvestri is one of Italy’s most original contemporary singer-songwriters, and a true representative of what is known as the “Roman school”. His debut in 1994 with the song “Daniele Silvestri” won him the Tenco Award for best first work of that year. In 1995 he participated in the “Giovani” division of the Sanremo music festival with the song “L'uomo col megafono” and came in at last place, but his talent was immediately recognised by a jury of writers that assigned “L'uomo col megafono” the Volare Award for best literary text of the Sanremo competition. In 1995 he won the golden disc with his song “Prima di essere uomo”, which was cited among the best of 1995 by “Music & Dischi” magazine. In 2002 he returned for the third time to the stage of the Ariston Theatre in Sanremo with “Salirò”. The album “Unò-duè” hovered at the top of the charts for weeks, and “Salirò” was the single that got the most radio play in 2002 and took no less than four prizes at the Italian Music Awards. In 2007 Silvestri went back to Sanremo with the song “La Paranza” and released his latest album “Il latitante”.
