Goldoni's Family of the Antiquarian's coming on Sunday!

Sunday, June 20 1pm at 277 Taylor St. - Free to the Public

Count Anselmo's obsession for valuable antiques make him a prime target for scams. Arlecchino, Brighella, and Colombina are all in on the act. This comedy by the author of The Servant of Two Masters is a rare treat to one of Italy's most uproarious plays. This reading of The Antiquarian's Family will be followed by a discussion on commedia dell'arte and on the revolutionary ways Goldoni re-examines this art form in his plays.

Beatrice Basso's translation of Carlo Goldoni's The Aniquarian's Family was commissioned by Shakespeare Santa Cruz. Our Hidden Classics Reading is generously funded in part by the Instituto Italiano di Cultura di San Francisco.
