The project

'Inhabiting the Opera' is a Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 project, carried out by the Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation, in collaboration with the Teatro San Carlo of Naples.

For the creation of this project we will take advantage of the collaboration of the citizens, directly involved in the staging of the opera 'La Cavalleria Rusticana' by Pietro Mascagni, which will be set in the Sassi stone districts.

The show will be divided into two parts:

- The first part is 'Prologue on the Stones', or 'The Seven Capitalist Sins': an itinerant prologue, animated by the participation of citizens, consisting of short tableaux inspired by the seven deadly sins that portray the excesses of contemporary neoliberalism;

- The second part consists of the staging of the opera 'La Cavalleria Rusticana' by Pietro Mascagni, directed by Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, in the suggestive setting of Piazza San Pietro Caveoso and at the Church of Santa Maria di Idris.

What does citizen participation entail?

Citizens will be called upon to take part in both the tableaux of 'The Seven Capitalist Sins' and some brief mass scenes in the work of Piestro Mascagni, with simple theatrical actions, choirs and choral dances.

Who are we looking for?

The call is open to everyone.
If you have (or want to acquire) theatrical, musical, choral singing, dance, movement or sport experience, don't hesitate to come and meet us.

How much commitment are we asking of citizens?

17 - 22 June: workshop
10 - 30 July: rehearsals
31 July: first dress rehearsal
1 August: final dress rehearsal
2 August: first performance
3 August: second performance

The workshop

The first workshop meeting open to citizens will be held on Monday 17 June, from 18.00 to 21.00 at the Casale Complex (Culture Department Office).

Between 18 and 22 June, other workshop meetings open to citizens will be held from 18.00 to 21.00 at the Casale Complex (Culture Department Office).

Every citizen will be able to take part in the workshop according to their availability.
Rehearsals from 10 July to 30 July will not require a commitment exceeding three times a week and will take place in the afternoon or evening, in order to allow everyone to participate.
