La Traviata in Rome
In the hot summer season, opera performances are a permanent attraction for tourists from Rome to Italy. As in any other city in the world, artistic activities do not stop and give the pleasure of many tourists also the salient values of Italian culture. Thus, on 6, 13, 20 and 27 August, in the center of Rome, in the great Church “San Paolo dentro delle mura”, near La Repubblica and La Traviata was established. The orchestra consisted of strings and plates more than a piano. The director was Nicola Hanslik Samele and in the main roles were Maristela Mariani-soprano, Emil Alekperov-tenor; Andrea Scarsolini – baritone, etc. So out of the opera house, the show seemed to have given him more contact with the general public. The shows are on the tickets but the spectators can listen to it for free after the lines of the seated spectators.
It would not be bad for us to “copy” sometimes even for valuable organizations. Imagine if there were shows of our works in the fortress of Scutari, in the Amphitheater of Durres or in Apollonia, like “Mrika”, the “Carnival of Korça” or “Zgjimi”. There would be great interest on the part of tourists who would leave Albania with a clearer idea of its culture. The problem is that we don’t usually measure our work with what we don’t do, but we only appreciate what we’ve done, no matter how small.
