Quattro Minuti con Casanova: Teatro Sant’Angelo

I haven’t posted a Quattro Minuti episode in a while, so here’s a new one to start your new year! The last two posts featured other theaters that Casanova was connected to: Teatro Goldoni and Teatro Benedetto. In today’s video, you’ll learn about Casanova’s stint as a theater manager at the Teatro Sant’Angelo, which is now a hotel. Yes, he was so much more than a famed lover–he was also an innovative theater manager and writer. This video gives you a taste of his mad skills, and for more details you can read the fuller description in Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps.

Thank you to the mother and daughter who were kind enough to film me this day last summer! And don’t you love the sound of splashing water and the church bells in the background? Ah, to be in Venice! This video has only 31 views at the time of this posting. Help me increase those numbers!  🙂
