As part of the ongoing celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the unification of Italy, on June 22 the Italian Cultural Institute presented a theatrical performance based on the landmark 19th century novel The Betrothed (I Promessi Sposi) by Alessandro Manzoni. The performance, which combined narrative, music and dance was directed and performed by Massimiliano Finazzer Flory with introductory readings by David Gibbons, choreography by Gilda Gelati, prima ballerina with the La Scala Theatre Ballet Company in Milan, and the music of Verdi, Bellini and others performed by violinist Elsa Martignoni. A reception followed the presentation which was accompanied by English subtitles.
