The famous 18th-century playwright Carlo Goldoni captured the essence of Venetian life in the much-loved genre of the marionette theatre in many of his comedies. Jonathan Keates, Chairman of Venice in Peril, introduces us to this world and shows us how Venice played a major role in the history of theatre and opera and illustrates his talk with examples from Venice in Peril’s recent project restoring 18th-century marionettes from Casa Goldoni.
