MAGGIORE THEATRE: THAT’S A TAKE

 
 
It was called "freewheeling" and so it was. Maggiore’s inaugural show, had a poker of top actors: Rocco Papaleo, Giovanni Veronesi, Sergio Rubini and Alessandro Haber. It was a show outside the box skipping from songs to monologues, jokes and memories of life proposed in one scene after another, not necessarily linked by a common thread.
Papaleo started off, but it was Veronesi a sort of presenter-disturber of his colleagues the ‘trait-d’union’, he is a writer and director before being an actor. Salacious jokes, never ending teasing have seen the four main characters undress, show their true selves and chat in an informal atmosphere, as if they were in a living room or at the table on a terrace by the lake - like Maggiore in fact it is.
The Maggiore eventually had its first show, and it was outside as hoped. After months of work and the anticipated opening everything was ready at 21.30 when the lights went on stage. The view behind the stage was stunning, with clear skies and lighted boats in the background. Among the audience there were Minister Enrico Costa, Undersecretary for Cultural Heritage Antimo Cesaro and Sergio Chiamparino, President of the Region.
Verbania was ready for the special occasion: great artists and an audience eager to redeem those many years without major cultural events. Maggiore opened to Verbania and its people and it did it with full success.
