The Myth and the Dream
This summer, the Ostia Antica Festival makes its return as a whole host of theatrical, dance and musical spectacles play out in the magical setting of Ostia Antica’s Parco Archeologico.
This year’s edition of the festival is entitled ll Mito e il Sogno (The Myth and the Dream) and has the balance of tradition and innovation at its core. Following the theatrical tradition, this season’s shows will take place in the ancient, outdoor Teatro Romano for the month of July. Besides its incredible history and longevity, the ruin makes an ideal setting thanks to its great acoustics. The prestige of this theatre will be matched by a rich selection of Italian and international artistic culture that will take to the stage.
This spectacular event kicked off on 8 June with La Tourandot, where hundreds of kids got on stage with the opera by Giacomo Puccini. But if you missed it, no worries: the calendar is bursting with an eclectic roster of artists. See Luca Argentero (22 June), the pioneers of electronic music Kraftwerk (27- 28 June), Antonio Rezza (29 June), Neurosis (11 July), Levante (19 July), Walking on the Moon (20 July), Il Mercante di Venezia (2 August), and Giancarlo Giannini (4 August) to name a few.
