L’ECCELLENZA ET TRIONFO DEL PORCO
Giulio Cesare Croce, music by Orazio Vecchi
Alberto Allegrezza acting, lyre singing, direction, scenes e costumes
Giovanni Bellini chitarrone
Giulio Cesare Croce, born in San Giovanni in Persiceto (Bologna), in 1550 was known as “Croce della Lira”, for his ability to chant his own poems accompanied by the lyre arm, for his ability to tune his own poems accompanied by the “lira da braccio”. He died in Bologna in 1609. His surviving works are numerous, including Le sottilissime astuzie di Bertoldo, but also L’Eccellenza et Trionfo del Porco (Ferrara, 1594). In this burlesque work, Croce’s idea is to have shifted the parody from the traditional forms of the epic to the contemporary ones of the scientific treaty. The choice of the music of Orazio Vecchi (from Modena) to complete the program is not accidental because the collaboration between the two was close and fruitful. The show, semi-staged, will be in costume and historical masks.
