A ‘Tango Macondo’ suspended between Sardinia by the writer Salvatore Niffoi and the city invented by Gabriel Garcìa Màrquez, to represent the story of Matoforu, a Sardinian ‘metaphors seller’ and his love for Anzelina, his singer, for a trip – underlined and accompanied by the music composed by Paolo Fresu, who performs on trumpet and flugelhorn – in an area defined as “on the border between delirium and geography”, which starts from Mamoiada in the deep Barbagia and reaches South America in Macondo, the imaginary country born from the imagination of the author of ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’. All this, on stage from 7 to 12 December at the Quirino theater in Rome with Ugo Dighero, Rosanna Naddeo, Paolo Li Volsi. The creator of the show, based on the novel ‘The seller of metaphors’ by Niffoi, as well as director Giorgio Gallione explains: “In a narrative that wants to be fluvial, magical realism and tragedy coexist; a fantastic tale that links two neighboring lands that become a laboratory and melting pot of an entire humanity. With Fresu’s music guiding the story, giving it back all its evocative richness and making passions and madness ferment, radiographed in all their overwhelming humanity and richness “. Between storytelling and music, tangos and popular music, archaic rites and dreamlike images, ‘Tango Macondo’ searches for the enchanted flavor of a time in which stories also served to alleviate the fatigue of living and to reaffirm the almost physiological need of the human being to listen and tell.
