Commedia dell'Arte (NSW)

Cultural Infusion

Commedia dell’ Arte is an Italian comedy style that originated in the market places of Renaissance Italy. Students are introduced to the history of Commedia, its trademark masks and characters, before they come to life in a performance!

Miserly Pantalone has finally agreed to pay his servants – but in typical Commedia style nothing goes to plan when Brighella schemes to steal Arlechinno’s share!
