Interview with Dario Fo.

‘…ironic and sensual, friendly but with a light taste of
satire, La Gazzetta by Rossini has been reborn in this
production that has the distinctive stamp of Fo, who has
been able to handle with strength the Rossinian chaos
without neglecting - and here his major virtue - the music.’
