Karénina
open rehearsals in unhappiness


A piano, an actress, the notes of Tchaikovsky, the words of Tolstoy.
Emanuele Trevi and Sonia Bergamasco began by playing with these primary elements with the lightness, innocence (and wisdom) of two children on the beach and they built a beautiful sandcastle, fragile and intense, which I approached taking care not to spoil the little marvel.
The tides of the staging have risen, the waves have covered everything, but miraculously, the castle is still standing: Ms. Bergamasco’s voice and body have constructed impalpable, indestructible walls cemented by a rare talent, towards which I feel – even before admiration – a sort of wonder tinged with appreciation and gratitude, as happens when you receive a gift.
