Join us for an incredible concert, specially crafted for the Lliure and featuring Neapolitan singer and actress Lina Sastri. The first stop on our artistic journey from the Mediterranean to Buenos Aires, this concert represents a singular opportunity to discover time-honored Neapolitan traditions, exquisitely sung by this splendid entertainer.

My name ends how my city’s starts. My city’s name ends how mine starts. My city’s name starts how mine ends. And my name starts how my city’s ends.
I’ve tried saying it as a single sound. And it sounds like I’m saying, like I’m singing...Napoli...over and over. Naples, stretching to infinity.
That’s why I’ve called this show Linapolina.
Journey through a woman’s soul, through music and theatre. Begin with a few snippets of Eduardo De Filippo’s great classics – from Bonaria’s trying, noble adolescence in Gli esami non finiscono mai to Filumena’s in Filumena Marturano.
This piece is about a woman’s simple, tangible relationship with faith, life and love, eschewing sentimentality and rhetoric. I’ve brought these characters to life on the stage. And next come the texts of great poets like Di Giacomo, set to music by illustrious composers like Tosti and accompanied by incredibly talented musicians, building to a climax with a homage to the great Totò and his Malafemmena.
Soak up the beauty of Era de maggio, I’ te vurria vasa, ‘O sole mio, Core ‘ngrato, Reginella, ‘O surdato ‘nnammurato, Passione, Tutta pe’ mme’, Tammurriata nera, Lo Guarracino, Torna a Surriento, Tarantella del Gargano, and others we pick as the music moves us... Join us for a feast of theatre, music and poetry in the great classic tradition.
