Watching the “Sorrento Musical” at the Tasso Theater (Teatro Tasso) can be a fun way to learn about Italian culture through a performance of traditional dances and songs.
The Teatro Tasso theater is located inside a former convent, and in the 1920s the space was used as a cinema. It was later the venue for opera performances, and today seats 500 people for its popular “Sorrento Musical” shows. The upper gallery level of the theater accommodates about 150 seats with tables set up so people can enjoy dinner during the show.
The “Sorrento Musical” is a 2-hour production (there is a 10-minute intermission) featuring traditional songs, dances, and costumes from the Sorrentine Peninsula and other parts of nearby southern Italy. You’ll hear familiar songs such as “O Sole Mio” and see the famous Tarantella dance performed. Audience members can get in on the fun, too, by joining the performers onstage to learn the Tarantella.
The audience has the option to arrive in time for a welcome drink just before the show begins, or - for a more complete evening - get to the theater earlier for dinner. Diners sit at the tables set up in the gallery of the theater and eat while musicians provide entertainment of guitar and mandolin music.
The performance of the “Sorrento Musical” is in Italian, but the acting and sets make the stories easy enough to understand even if you don’t speak the language.
