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 15 June with Amii Stewart & Gerardo Di Lella, where together they brought back the original atmosphere of the songs of the 70s that so deeply touched us. But if you missed it, no worries: the calendar is bursting with an eclectic roster of artists. See Giuseppe Verdi’s AIDA (8 – 9 June), Jeff Beck (24 July), The Queen Orchestra (7 July), Cigarettes After Sex (10 July), Heritart Festival (13 – 14 July), Mediterranea (14 July), Myles Kennedy (19 July), Damien Rice (22 July), Fascismo Mon Amour (24 July), Pink Floyd Legend (28 July) and Angelo Pintus (8 September).
