The cast and crew of The Servant of Two Masters would like to wish you a happy commedia dell’arte day! Celebrated every February 25th, commedia dell’arte day is an international celebration hosted by the Italian cultural association SAT. SAT has held this annual celebration since 2005, in a effort to help Italy and the United Nations (UNESCO) honor commedia as an official piece of “Intangible Cultural Heritage“.
This year, the largest part of the commedia dell’arte day celebration is being held in Istanbul. Running from the 17th to the 28th of February, the commedia dell’arte celebration features a long list of commedia performances, presentations, workshops, and a carnival parade.
As The Servant of Two Masters is built on the commedia tradition, we are happy to add just a small part to this celebration!
