Direction: Adonis Florides
Starring Andreas Vasiliou, Andreas Makris, Elias Andreou et al./Cyprus
Written in 1746 “The Servant of Two Masters” by Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni (1707 – 1793) is one of his best-known works. It has been translated and adapted internationally numerous times and is a fine example of its genre, the 18th century Italian Comedy. As one of the most important representatives of “humanist theatre”, Goldoni explores through his work the human relationships and moral values related to logic and the “civilized human”. He condemns arrogance, intolerance, the abuse of power and the moral decay of a society which is based on hypocrisy and corruption.
Goldoni often combines the strengths and the energetic stock characters of Commedia dell’arte with his own wit and sincerity in order to create his unique comic style. “The Servant of Two Masters” is a caustic satire about love, passion, and the pursuit of happiness, but also about everyday survival.
