A mad king’s reign gives way to ruin.
King Lear is ready to “shake all cares and business from our age” and turn his realm over to his three daughters. His plan is to bestow the largest piece to the daughter who loves him most. But honeyed words and excessive pride blind Lear to the true motives of those around him, plunging king and kingdom into a world of treachery, madness and unspeakable acts revealing the worst and best in human nature.

Project Shakespeare returns this year with The Tempest!
Last summer Aldworth Manor hosted Project Shakespeare’s production of Romeo and Juliet prior to travelling to Stratford-upon-Avon, England to perform at the Royal Shakespeare Company’s outdoor theatre, The Dell. This summer we are thrilled for their return!
“O brave new world that has such people in’t.” Miranda
Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, holds sway over an enchanted island. Comforted by his daughter, Miranda; served by his spirit, Ariel; and cursed by his slave, Caliban; Prospero raises a sea storm that wrecks his brother and other royals on the island. Begrudged creatures and drunken clowns, charmed royals and magical spirits alike, all struggle between the temptation for revenge and greed, and the grace of forgiveness and humility.

Sicilian and traditional Italian music.
Love of Sicilian and Southern Italian Roots Music is what drives ROSA TATUATA to passionately interpret the traditions and melodies of their ancestors. Just as their name comes from Tennessee Williams’ beloved play about the happy, raucous collision of immigrant and American cultures; likewise ROSA TATUATA’s performance relates that incredible commingling to their beloved audience through song!
Fueled by their research into traditional instruments like the tamburo ( Sicilian frame drum), organetto, marranzano ( jaw’s harp) and zampogna ( Southern -Italian bagpipes), ROSA TATUATA introduces traditional songs into different musical contexts that rhythmically mirror the commingling of Old & New World. With an enchanting mix of ballads and dance tunes, ROSA TATUATA will take your imagination to sunbathed Southern Italy and the clear, crystal-blue waters surrounding Sicily. See Michela Musolino, Phil Passantino, Charlie Rutan and Jeffrey Panettieri as ROSA TATUATA.
-Rosa Tatuata’s instrumentation: vocals; guitar; organetto; accordion; saz; mandolin; ciaramedda; zampogna; frischialettu; flute; clarinet; marranzano; tamburello; tamburo; & lira calabrese.

Praised for creative programming and an “impeccably balanced sound,” the group has performed since 2003 at venues throughout New England including Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Plimoth Plantation, the New England Folk Festival, WGBH radio, and many others. They have researched and presented dynamic original programs for the Amherst, Bloomington, and Boston Early Music Festivals (Fringe), the Society For Historically Informed Performance, and their own self-produced concert series, now in its 15th year. These musicians delight in blurring the lines between “art music” and folk tunes, and feel at ease performing in the concert hall, the dance hall, or the beer hall!
