The lost Theatres of Venice: the San Cassiano
When Venice was a city, it was a city of Theatres. They were everywhere, those for the opera and those for comedy, for farce and even for puppets, some expensive, accessible only to a very select public, others cheap, to make Cash.
Hardly any of them survives today, and if every now and then it happens that the gaze runs on a niesi’eto reminiscent of an ancient presence, few know what it is and pull straight.
We take Campo San cassian, not far from the fishmonger and Rialto market
well, Maybe not everyone knows that something happened in this place that made the history of the Theatre. Here there was in fact the Teatro Tron (from the name of the noble family that owned It) of San cassiano, erected in the sixteenth century and then rebuilt in the following Centuries. here, one evening of 1637 was represented the Andromeda of Francesco Manelli or mannelli, musician and singer of Lazio origin who had recently moved to Venice. It was not the first work he wrote and represented, but that time he had an idea: instead of seeking the graces of some prince or cardinal who represented the work in his own palace, he took a theatre concession and opened it to the public in exchange for the purchase of a Entrance Fee. That evening of 1637, in venice, was born the modern opera house, run by a impresario and designed for a paying public, from the tastes certainly less refined than those of ladies and knights of a court, but also a huge stimulus for composers, librettists and Set designers to create increasingly exciting and engaging shows, with more and more complex plots, dozens of characters and a scenic apparatus that had to strike wonder. In this small street, in short, was born the modern theatre and if the Andromeda of Mannelli does not remain I think the booklet, who needs a little more thrill can think that always here, just four years later, was represented for the first time a masterpiece that Still today we see on our scenes, the return of Ulysses in the homeland of the Divine Claudio Monteverdi.
