The Italian Tragedies of Lord Byron
Byron’s Italian Tragedies follow the scandals, schemes, and downfalls of two historical Doges, exploring questions of justice, freedom of expression, and the corruption of power. Published in 1821, both plays held a lasting influence over nineteenth-century painters, composers and poets – from Delacroix to Verdi to A.C. Swinburne.
Evening Crane Theatre will resurrect both Tragedies the Sunday before Mardi Gras 2017 in a production featuring masks by Storm Garner and Ariel Kleinberg, directed by Michael Seebold. Veronica Nolte will star as the Doge Faliero in the first tragedy, Corey Tuccillo as the Doge Foscari in the second.
The plays contain frightening scenes and may not be suitable for young children.
