Melodrama is a heightened, musical form of physical theatre where unbridled passions reign, and where the forces of good in human nature triumph over terrible obstacles. In this evening of short, original melodramas created and performed by the students of Dell’Arte’s Professional Training Program, audiences are moved to boo and cheer as characters overcome seemingly impossible odds.

Experience the awesome, visceral power of the Chorus as Dell’Arte’s 2nd Year MFA Ensemble dives into the realm of Tragedy, a theatrical form with ancient roots in the human experience. Through physical and vocal alchemy, the actors conjure universal forces at play in the space of the stage. In the words of theatre visionary Antonin Artaud, Tragedy bracingly reminds us all that, in spite of our best intentions, “the sky can still fall on our heads.”
