The International Theatre Festival in Venice will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year and promises to be as big as triumph as ever.
From February 20th until March 8th the event will see some of the leading lights of Italian and world theatre descend on this beautiful coastal city in a whirlwind of performances, workshops and informative events.
Among the highlights is the presentation of the Golden Lion to Irene Papas, for her continued brilliance throughout a career spanning several decades, as well as performances of Le sorelle Bronte and Argelino servidor de dos amos.
The spring event follows on from the series of educational and training functions held in November – highlighting how much of this tremendous institution is about nurturing new theatrical talent as it is celebrating established successes.
Visitors on Venice tours can expect to see a range of performances across many genres and the chance to meet a number of luminaries from both on stage and behind the scenes.
