One of the best known plays of the Commedia del’Arte form, Gozzi’s magical tale brings to life King Deramo, his faithful wife Angela, his treacherous prime minister Tartaglia, several hare-brained members of his court, a magician, a parrot, magical stags, and a giant bear. A fairy tale for all ages, The King Stag captures the sheer fun and bracing physicality of the Italian comic tradition.

Opening Night: February 18
