The next concerts in collaboration with the Napoli Teatro Festival Italia *:

Concert show with two souls, two acts in which Foja, drawing on their published and unpublished songbook, investigate issues related to the sentimental sphere and existential and social issues, mixing tradition and modernity. Miracles, like love, transcend human understanding, involve the supernatural; whereas Revolutions, internal or otherwise, require human intervention for the transformation of events.

5 July, from 9pm onwards (Italian time),

“Ho ucciso i Beatles” (“I killed the Beatles”). Mark David Chapman, Beatles fan and John Lennon killer, relives his story in a hallucinated flashback punctuated by music. Live from Salerno Cathedral, with English subtitles.

The event proposed here retraces the sad deeds of Mark David Chapman, who from being a Beatles fan went on to become John Lennon's assassin.

If someone had asked Mark David Chapman who the Beatles were, he could have talked for hours and perhaps ended up comparing John to Young Holden. When he was arrested, he still had Salinger's book in his hands. Not far away was Lennon's body. With five gunshots, the former big boy from Honolulu had interrupted John's life and the dreams of the Beatles' and of millions of fans. Chapman relives, in a hallucinated flashback punctuated by music, his story involving the most famous band of all time.

9 July, from 9pm onwards (Italian time),

“La mistica del cosmo” (“The Mystique of the Cosmos”).
The sacred works of the Neapolitan tradition are the starting point for a reflection on human beings and our ability to understand the universe. Live from the main courtyard of the Royal Palace of Naples.

Raffaella Ambrosino mezzosoprano and artistic direction

Midiware technical advice

By listening to this sublime page of the Neapolitan musical tradition, Cristoforo Caresana’s Magnificat, conserved at the National Library of France in Paris, we wonder about human beings and their ability to understand the universe. Scientific progress starts with the observation of nature in order to arrive at fundamental universal concepts. The spiritual magnificence of Caresana’s
opera sacra prompts us to question our destiny as humans by staging a present-day performance on the fragility of the human being next to creation’s greatness.

* The Napoli Teatro Festival Italia is an international theatre festival which takes place every year in Naples during the months of
