Offered by the  Consulate of Italy in Detroit and the Dante Alighieri Society of Michigan and organized in collaboration with  In Scena.

Manca solo Mozart (Only Mozart is Missing) written & directed by Antonio Grosso, was performed by Marco Simeoli on Saturday, May 6 at the  Marygrove Conservancy and Liberal Arts Theater.

Based on the true stories of Marco Simeoli’s grandfather, founder of the most influential music store in Naples, still in business, MUSICA SIMEOLI. The history of Italy is traced from documents and scores found in a store apparently abandoned and suspended in time.
Through words and music, Marco Simeoli brings to the stage the many stories of his grandfather: Memories of the Belle Époque, the Second World War, the economic boom of the Sixties, and the great illusion of the Eighties. A century comes alive thanks to the many famous clients of Musica Simeoli, such as Totò, Roberto Murolo, Renato Carosone, Riccardo Muti, Pino Daniele, and Massimo Troisi.
