Scene: John Napier
Costumes: John Napier
Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber
Director: Trevor Nunn
Production: Teatro Stabile del Friuli Venezia Giulia in association with David Ian Productions present The Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group Production of Cats
After the resounding success in 2008 the musical Cats has returned to Politeama Rossetti in Trieste in its original English edition, directed by Trevor Nunn and produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group. The tour is produced by David Ian Productions.
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber on the lyrics of Thomas Stearns Eliot, Cats is the most famous among the musicals. After the debut in Trieste show will be staged at the Teatro degli Arcimboldi in Milan, in collaboration with Bags Entertainment.
The great Politeama Rossetti in Trieste will be bringing to us the amazing magic of Cats from the 19th to the 23d of March, 2014.
Cats is on the stage for 21 years. There were 8,950 performances in London and in New York; 7 Tony Awards, including the one for the Best Musical, Best Score and Best Director, and a Grammy for the best album. One of the songs of the show – Memory – has become one of the most famous and performed musical peaces in history (tit was performed by more than 150 international artists, from Barbra Streisand to Barry Manilow).  Cats is the musical of musicals!
The musical of Andrew Lloyd Webber is based on The Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats – a book of poems of the famous English writer Thomas Stearns Eliot about his cats. This beautiful show has an artistic quality of the highest level: it is directed by Trevor Nunn (one of the most well known British directors, who has been a director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre for many years). Cats has become a reference point for dozens of subsequent productions. It perfectly balances the spectacular special effects with the delicacy of the beautiful music of Webber, with the harmonic choreography of Gillian Lyne, one of the most beautiful choreographies ever created for a musical and with the amazing costumes of John  Napier.
In Trieste, we will admire a cast of first level yet to be defined and, of course, there will be the orchestra. One more time the cats will tell us their stories under the moon light on the stage, as dictated by the plot.  Everyone will tell their own life and their passions to the wise Old Deuteronomy, to convince him that he deserves the revival, in a new “Jellicle Life.” All this results in an outstanding crescendo of singing and dance numbers.
You can visit the show with your 2013-2014 Politeama Rossetti season ticket.
