A teatro con Eduardo

Two essential works by De Filippo: the first act of Home [Man and gentleman] and in its entirety, La gran il·lusió [The illusionist]. An entertaining immersion in the art of the theatre and the truth of fiction provided by a theatre company and an illusionist. Directed by Lluís Pasqual.

Barcelona Critic's Prices to the Best Direction to Lluís Pasqual and Best Scenic Space to Alejandro Andújar and Lluís Pasqual.


“Theatre is the desperate efforts made by man in an attempt to give some meaning to life”. Eduardo de Filippo
A night of theatre with Eduardo de Filippo,  an author who loves everything about it, themes, characters, spectators... is always promising. The evening consists of two works: the first act of a piece from his youth, Home i senyor [Man and Gentleman], in which we see a rehearsal by a theatre company in a hotel. And then La gran il·lusió, in which the first act takes place in a hotel where the guests become the audience of a magic show. Eduardo de Filippo has never been so close to Pirandello. Life is like a play at the theatre, yes, but also like a Chinese box or a Russian doll that contains one inside another, and another and another, like an illusion that never ends... Hilarity and excitement come together in the hands of this Neapolitan genius who used the theatre to explain life, always with an easy-going smile on his lips, very similar to ours.
