The opera "Medusa" by Giacomo Cuticchio and the backstage "Making Medusa" directed by Chiara Andrich will be broadcasted on RAI5 on Saturday 4 July 2020 at 7.45 pm!

In the summer of 2019, the young Sicilian puppeteer Giacomo Cuticchio dedicated a new original show for music and puppets to the mythological figure of Medusa. Medusa, before being the monster that we all know, was a beautiful girl who, raped by the God Poseidon, was cursed by Athena. Victim of violence, Medusa witnesses all that humanity in search of justice, consideration, love. The film "Making Medusa" follows the genesis of the artistic work, between the scenes of the puppet theater, the rehearsals with the orchestra up to the suggestive final staging, making you reflect on a very current theme.

The documentary and the complete recording, also edited by Chiara Andrich, of the first execution of the opera "Medusa" by Giacomo Cuticchio - which took place on 26 July 2019 at Palazzo D'Aumale in Terrasini (Palermo) - are both distributed on the Italian national television RAI 5 and on Raiplay.
