A show inspired by Andersen’s fairy tale at the Civic Theater of Busca

Sunday 22 January at 4.30 pm, at the Civic Theater of Busca, for the theatrical season “Stella Madre” organized by Santibriganti Teatro in the Civic Theaters of Caraglio, Busca and Dronero, a show will be staged for the whole family: “The soldier of pond”.

A Nata Teatro and Stivalaccio Teatro production with the actor Giorgio Castagna, live music played by the actor-musician Lorenzo Bachini, both directed by Marco Zoppello.

A known story: he, a tin soldier without a leg and she, the splendid dancer of the music box; between them, a great feeling born on a house of cards, in a child’s playroom and to divide them, a lot of misadventures, including bad boys on the street, lots of water, a huge fish, mice and manhole covers.

It’s one of those stories that when they tell you, you never forget it, maybe because it’s about love, diversity, courage; deals with life, with its shadows and lights and its transformations, which happen because they just happen, without drama. Because nothing ends, but everything is transformed.

Director Zoppello’s proposal finds inspiration in Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, implementing an adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, narrated with live music.

The Nata Teatro theater company feeds on all theatrical genres. Since its inception on 8 September 1988, it has been inspired by contemporary dramaturgy, the great classics and dance theater to stage shows for everyone, young and old.

Tickets available online at www.ticket.it or at the ticket office, opening one hour before the show.
