Il musical degli italiani a londra
It’s almost all set for Il Musical degli Italiani a Londra, an artistic and linguistic project that involves the creation and staging of a new musical created for, with and by the British-Italian community in London to explore themes of identity, multiculturalism and the very concept of community.
In May 2021, during over 20 workshops held at SIAL.school, the only Italian / English bilingual school in London, about 45 children and young people between 9 and 21 years of age contributed to the creation of ideas for writing the story and music of the Musical, through a variety of dramatic and musical activities. In November 2021 the cast was assembled and in January 2022 it started the rehearsal phase, which will lead to the performance on the 16th July 2022 at the Britten Theatre, within the Royal College of Music (South Kensington, London). It will be a bilingual musical: in English and Italian, aimed at a varied London audience, from children, young people, parents and grandparents.
“This project stems from the desire to give a voice and represent the community of Italians in London, with particular attention to bilingual families who see their children born and raised in the country they have chosen as their home. – explains Eleonora Giovannardi, one of the creators and Producers of the Musical – For this reason, to open the search for sponsors who want to support the launch of the Musical, we decided to turn to the Italian businesses that operate in London and that have one of their main target audiences in the Italian community. The idea is to offer visibility to all companies small and large, which despite Brexit and the pandemic, have continued to operate, bringing a little Italian spirit to this side of the pond. “
