It will be entrusted to the bubbly Veronica Pivetti, with the musical comedy " Viktor und Viktoria" by Emanuele Gamba, the opening of the prose season 2019-2020 of the Teatrodante Carlo Monni of Campi Bisenzio. For the show, scheduled for Saturday 9 November at 9.00 pm (piazza Dante, 23), Pivetti will play a talented unemployed singer, who pretends to be a man to win audiences against a 1930s Berlin, in an exhilarating crescendo of pro quo, songs and disguises for sentimental plots with no holds barred.

Freely inspired by the homonymous 1933 film by Reinhold Schunzel, set in a Berlin stunned first by the glories and then by the misery of the Weimar republic, the provincial actress, Susanne Weber (Veronica Pivetti), arrives in town driven by hunger and in looking for writing. The encounter with a fellow actor, Vito Esposito (Yari Gugliucci) Italian immigrant, seems to change her life. The couple shares hunger, scenes and jokes and, in the end, they will also exchange sex and identity! Susanne sacrifices herself and becomes Viktor und Viktoria, that is an acclaimed and fascinating en travesti , acclaimed in all theaters of Europe. And while the political situation degenerates precipitously, Susanne will be forced to make her choices, sentimental and of life: will Susanne / Viktor be able to abandon herself in the arms of her unexpected love without having the choice prove fatal to her? On stage also Giorgio Borghetti, Yari Gugliucci, Sergio Mancinelli, Roberta Cartocci and Nicola Sorrenti.
