For some time I have been toying with the idea of trying, just once, to do a reading on stage of Novecento. After twenty years of performances, all over the world, in every style and with totally different artists, I thought that coming home to the original voice of Novecento might turn out to be interesting, both for me and for the audience. A way of listening to that music again, with the sound I had imagined for it.
And so I put together this production, imagining an elegant, light, essential and emotionally moving performance.  I asked Nicola Tescari to write an original score, that I could use in recorded form, not live. And then with Tommaso Arosio and Eleonora De Leo I tried to create a page layout Ė not really a set design and direction, but a layout that would be right for what I wanted to do: read. Not act, not lecture, not become a character. Read a text: my text.
Iím sure Iíll do it differently every night, because Iím not an actor and I canít imagine what itís like to go up on a stage and do something that always ends the same way. So probably each time there will be a different color, the show will last for a different time, or convey a different joy. The only thing Iíve decided ahead of time is that there will be an intermission. And that Iíll try to avoid outdoor venues. No piazzas or open-air theaters: readings are fragile things, they do far better indoors.
A couple of years and thatís it. A dozen dates a year. No more than that. Maybe that way Iíll manage to make them all unforgettable. At least for me.
