Un Concerto nel Teatro di Marcello

July 25, 2009

last night i attended a concert of traditional italian music, an event associated with one of the many music and art series that fill the roman summer calendar. these concerts are staged outdoors at the Teatro di Marcello, an archeological site built in 18 B.C. the place looks like a miniature version of the Colosseum. most nights they present classical pianists, but last night they featured a duo of piano and accordion, playing traditional songs, as well as music from old film scores. i’ll post some photos below. there’s also a photo of the Tiber at sunset, as i crossed the bridge over the Isola Tiberina on my way to the performance.teatro di marcello concerto 1
