About This Clip

La tempesta

An Italian adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest directed by Giorgio Strehler in 1983.

Notes on full video recording for the Italian TV broadcast, 1984.
Of interest is Strehler’s interpretation of magic as seen by Carlo Battistoni, who directed the TV broadcast of the stage play: see, in particular, the opening tempest and its metatheatrical dimension; Ariel’s first apparition (0:18:50); Ariel as Harpy (1:57:00); Prospero’s renunciation of his magic (2:36:20). See also Caliban’s first entrance from under the stage (28’30” in the full video).

Antonio: Osvaldo Ruggieri

Trinculo: Paolo Falace
