Tiezzi / Ostermeier, "Questa sera si recita a soggetto" / "Il gabbiano": occasioni sprecate
This article examines the production by Tiezzi, writted by Pirandello and the production by Ostermeier, writted by Čechov. Tiezzi – according to Alonge – exalts the metatheatrical approach of a typical “play within the play”, but the result is negative. More persuasive is the originality of Tiezzi when he penetrates the Sicilian story, full of jealousy and violence, between Mommina and Rico Verri. The production by Ostermeier is absolutely disappointing. Alonge emphasizes the taste for topicality that pushes Ostermeier to stage Čechov in modern dress, changing the words of the text.
