Pulcinella, the puppet, is stripped of its violent side, and made poetic and dreamy in its semblance, where the asperities of its face are smoothed away by a new roundness. Entirely accompanied by the music of Rossini, this Melodious Pulcinella meets the classical characters of the tradition of the Neapolitan puppets: the female figure, the dog, the policeman’s authority, the demon representing the relationship with the afterworld.
The characters can make unexpected things, thanks to the black theatre technique applied to puppets, in a succession of dynamic and exciting scenes.
