Aria da Capo

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Directed by Lavina Jadhwani

Part of the Alcyone Festival 08

Aria da Capo was written in the wake of World War I by Prize-winning poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. The play juxtaposes the developed Commedia Dell'Arte form of eighteenth century France with the classical Greek "pastoral" theatrical style, and also exhibits dark absurdist overtones drawn from the modernist theater scene.
