Her stories are real or false…It doesn’t matter. I loved the rewinding of the tape of past events by mixing truth and fiction, the life of the living and the dead, until the present.
The still elegant Bag Lady brings out moments life, carrier, travels, lovers, not to mention a very persona interpretation of the every single sign of the horoscope according to his penis…The 70 minutes monologue of Je Me fut is brilliantly performed by Rosalina Neri, notorious back in the 50′ and 60’as the Italian bombshell Marylln Monroe lookalike.
First Italian date for Lukas Graham Band at Carroponte Center, Milan.
I was surprise to see not a big crowd , but made the concert even more intimate , colloquial and definitely grand. Lukas loves to talk to the public, to entertain, to be cool. “This is our first concert in Italy and the first one not sold out, but that’s ok , we ‘ll love to play for you, we would like to thank you for coming .” A humble, gentle friendly performer, who like to talk of family, memories, personal stories, dreams, food and to cheer with a drink.The band, an amazing voice and , of course. There is a great companionship between Lukas and his band, drummer Mark Falgren, bassist Magnus Larsson, keyboardist Kasper Daugaard and a great session of saxophone and trumpets that brings to stage rhythm n blues atmosphere.Many hits, starting from the opening Better Than Yourself that echoes Beethoven’s Sonata au clair de lune , Welcome to my funeral, Strip no more, Mama said, ‘We love Italy , probably the one country in the world where you have lunch…before working. We love to see the main church in the city we play in. So far the Cathedrals in Milan and Colone are our favorite, but hey, tomorrow will be in Rome…’His love for father Eugene whom Lukas describes as My father. My mentor. My best friend became a strong reference like in Don’t you worry about me , You are not there and the super famous 7 Years, one the most beautiful song of the season, that I would not be surprised ( and I wish) to see it crowned as Best Song of The Year in the next Grammy Awards.

Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 6pm at The World School Chelsea, 259 Tenth Avenue, NYC,
|Put together the “Swan Song ” a vaudeville by Chekhov about an old actor in a
theatre after the lights go out, the eternal music of Tchaikovsky,
the genially irreverent choreography and direction by Fabrizio Monteverde
and a bunch of older, aching, curved dancers who want to live one more time the tragic love story of Prince Siegfried and Odette/Odile. The result is an amazing new version of one of the most celebrated ballet in the history The Swan Lake,
this time retitled Il Lago dei Cigni ovvero il Canto. A contemporary ballet that ancient dancers remember and recreate with enormous love and pain. From an amazing opening with all the dancers/swans lied down on ground covered with colored cloths of the scene, while only their raised arms are moving as swan necks to the Odette’s solo, first pure purity and then more and more disjointed and bloodless revealing physical stress and despair to an intense finale where topless Odette frees her body and her beauty to revive the lost youth.Soloists Roberta De Simone, Claudia Vecchi, Luca Pannacci and Siro Guglielmi, among all the artists of the Balletto di Roma certainly know how give to the audience some emotional, intense, unforgettable moments.
At Teatro Carcano till April 30th
