Following his successful Macbettu and La Tempesta (The Tempest), Alessandro Serra presents this production to audiences of all ages in the newly converted Sala Pasolini. Prince Midnight lives under a curse: he is doomed to change into a hideous being as soon as he meets true love. To avoid this fate, he has resolved never to fall in love and locked himself up in a smoke-filled stately home where he lives alone, in an unhappy and moody state. A merry-go-round of comic and grotesque characters, haunting images and magical shadows leads the audience to discover the finale of this romantic and sensitive fairy tale.
