A genius so assured he could write operas faster than secretaries could copy them, a genius so original even Bach cribbed his melodies, a genius so unconventional that his conflicting roles -- Catholic priest and creative renegade; cultural iconoclast and establishment favorite -- still shock people today, Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741) remains an artist without equal. Now he comes to exuberant life in the new drama The Red Priest of Venice at the Shelton Theater. Today best known for The Four Seasons, Vivaldi was one of the most brilliant figures of the baroque period, a composer whose life was as passionate and stormy as his music. Compelling and humorous, this 90-minute show focuses on a critical period in his life when he began writing his most dazzling masterpiece ... and when he fell under the spell of two equally dazzling ladies.

Great actors and fast paced. I found the play a bit repetitious, but
I would still recommend it, however, we felt the theater itself it's a total fire trap. No announces were made about exits. You are in a basement with seemingly one way out! the way you entered and up a narrow stairway. Scary to say the least.
Quotes & Highlights
“The set is both artistic and realistic. The acting was uniformly outstanding and the audience was totally enthralled. They stood up, and wildly applauded. Now, you can’t get any better than that.” -BeyondChron
“A hilarious, sharp-eyed, cringe-inducing exposé of what’s hidden under individual veneers of civilization … At the Shelton, in Lisa Drostova’s tight direction, text and movement all come across loud and clear.” -examiner.com
The Shelton Theater presents Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Lisa Drostova.
