Gabriele Marchesini

DSC0622122Gabriele Marchesini is theater and also radio and television director (Rai 1, Rai 2 and Rai 3), actor of readings with ensembles of classical music and live jazz, teacher of theatrical training courses and organizer of artistic events. He also teaches theater and visual art to American students at the Eastern College Consortium and the Indiana University program. He published the book Conoscere il teatro (Thema Loescher, 1988). After the classical studies (Lyceum and philosophy at University of Bologna) he started his professional career as actor first and theater director soon after. He was invited to present his first show Hieronymus Bosch at the International Festival of Tubingen in Germany (1974) and to represent Italy in the new theater of European research. Since then, he has directed dozens of live shows working with hundreds of actors and singers. He successfully worked with all theatrical genres (from experimentation to traditional prose, from puppet theater to opera, from classical to contemporary dramaturgy), distinguishing himself for many artistic innovations. The international success of the co-production of the Diptych of Padre Martini (Master of Music and Don Quixote), presented in Japan and Macao, has led to the subsequent collaboration for the preparation of a new version of Madama Butterfly by Puccini, always with the Teatro Comunale of Bologna, in Kyoto in September of 2014. In September 2015, he directed I Pagliacci by Leoncavallo in Japan.
