The Milan audience greeted the last performance of Bharati last night in a blaze of applause and dancing, the musical that in just a few days, from Friday 22 to Wednesday 27 October, filled the city and the Teatro degli Arcimboldi with the colours and aromas of India. Over six thousand enthusiastic spectators were captivated by the rhythmic music and choreography of this spectacular Indian production, who staged with taste, irony and unquestionable artistic quality all the variety, tradition and modernity of a country with immortal charm.
Every evening, at the close of the show, Pietro Pignatelli, the actor who played the narrator in Italy, weaving the musical's plot with extreme skill amidst numerous costume changes and discenographies, did not have to struggle to convince the audience to join the cast dancing with him on stage - 65 artists including dancers, singers and musicians.
Bharati, while waiting to return to Italy in 2011 for new shows to be announced as soon as possible, is now continuing its European tour, with stops in Switzerland and France, where it will be on stage for over a month, including three consecutive weeks in Paris alone!
Claudio Trotta by Barley Artswho brought this musical to Italy, comments on the experience that has just ended: 'Bharati is an extraordinary show, new and different from any musical or other theatrical show seen before in our country - and this is not my opinion, but that of the public, which this week has overwhelmed us with comments full of appreciation. That is why we are already working, together with producer Gashash Deshe, to bring it back on tour in Italy in 2011'.
