Composed to a libretto by Paolo Madron based on “The Adventures of Pinocchio” by Carlo Collodi, Pinocchio, burattino di talento (Pinocchio, the Talented Puppet) was first seen at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza on 5 May 2001. Valtinoni then shortened the opera’s name to just Pinocchio, but extended its length from one act to two. This new version, premiered at the Komische Oper in Berlin on 5 November 2006, enjoyed an uninterrupted three-year run at the theatre.
Pierangelo Valtinoni tells: «Thinking about a work for children, among many fairy tales Pinocchio was the first one I addressed to. It is not only a perfect and universal story, but also an archetype of initiation into life, where a little naughty boy, liar and gullible, easily led and influenced, becomes a responsible and sensible human being through a series of adventures»
