Galeazzi and Ovadia in “Double Front. Oratorio for the Great War”

moni ovadia“Double Front. Oratorio for the Great War” is the title of the show that Moni Ovadia and Lucilla Galeazzi are proposing in Italian theaters to celebrate the centenary of the First World War. The two artists – both engaged, through different references and repertories but with the same spirit of anti-rhetorical, as part of the revived musical expressions of oral tradition – have organized a show on the words, as well as on the music. The texts are in fact taken from letters from the front, from the testimony of some soldiers (including Gadda and Ungaretti) and diaries of those who lived the war “at home”. The Veneto and Friuli – we read in the presentation notes of the show, which these days is at the Teatro Cucinelli of Solomeo (Perugia) – represent a sad paradox of this event which marked a watershed for contemporary society: “enrolled in ’14 by ‘Austrian army and sent to fight on the Eastern Front, in ’15 they found themselves in the trenches against the Italian army”. As for the songs, Galeazzi (narrator) and Ovadia (in the role of aedo) have used the vast repertoire that was fortunately passed down (and documented) to the present day, linked to the tragic suggestions that the war has resulted in those who lived it. In this framework, again, the patriotic songs, songs against the war, the contributions of intellectuals and authors such as Trilussa and E. A. Mario, up to the famous “Gorizia”. The show – in which the two artists are joined by Paolo Rocca (clarinet), Massimo Marcer (trumpet), Albert Florian Mihai (accordion), Luca Garlaschelli (bass) – is also an extraordinary opportunity to retrace the historical and political dynamics that have led to the outbreak of the first World War.
