Last night at Teatro dell'Opera di Roma the heavy-hitters (?) of Rome's social set trussed up their sagging bits, aired-out their wardrobes, injected some fillers, and headed for the theater to fete Franco Zeffirelli's production of Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. To Rome's distinctive crowds, Maestro Gianluigi Gelmetti was on the podium, Myrtò Papatanasiu sang as Nedda, and Stuart Neill as Canio.
Dagospia was there (photos by the awesome Umberto Pizzi, Italian heir to Diane Arbus), and caught the madness. In addition to Frengo, Nicoletta Mantovani made an appearnce, as did Carla Fracci and her director/choreographer hubby Beppe Menegatti.
