OPENING NIGHT AT THE CASTLE! 

November 16, 2015

Hey Guys! Ryan Bauer-Walsh here for Prospect Theater Company! Well, we did it! In about a week we put up a production of Death For Five Voices in the town of Gesualdo, Italy. Performing this material in the setting where a large majority of it occurred, was amazing.

The cast of D45V:

Getting this thing on it’s feet was quite an adventure. There is no backstage– there is a courtyard and a staircase that leads to an abandoned section of the castle– and no green room– but a reinvented kitchen from just before electricity became mainstream. The history of this place is incredible– It has been a strong hold in Gesualdo since 1009.

A group of school kids came to watch us rehearse during day. They are from the local music school. They had great questions and thought Wilson looked like Malfoy from Harry Potter or Justin Timberlake.

After the show we had a quick breakdown to prepare the show to be transported to Avellino. 12122955_10153113217901971_5505981065284456627_n

To now be a part of that history… is something I can’t quite grasp yet. But I am so thrilled to have had this opportunity. It was a long day– so this is a short blog. But tomorrow…. we have adventure time! Off to Pompeii!

See you then!
