Il primo miracolo di Gesù Bambino da Mistero Buffo di Dario Fo e Franca Rame
con Matthias Martelli, regia Eugenio Allegri

Mistero Buffo
 is considered the masterpiece of Dario Fo. Eugenio Allegri directs Matthias Martelli in the re-presentation of this extraordinary work: the actor is alone on the stage, without tricks, with the intention of involving the public in the dramatic action, going from the comic lecture to the poetry, up to the human and social tragedy. A new and original language and interpretation, in the name of the tradition of a genre used by medieval jesters to overturn the triumphant ideology of the time by demonstrating its groundlessness.

"To speak of the current production is to be at a loss for words, as Martelli’s interpretation of the jongleur soars beyond the heights of genius – both in its devotion to the person of Fo and in his betrayal of him – in making Mistero Buffo a work of art that is now very much Martelli’s own [...] is nothing short of the most spellbinding piece of physical theatre you are likely to witness in any one lifetime" - (Loretta Monaco)
