Roberto De Simone :: "Secondo Coro Delle Lavandaie"

Roberto de Simone (1933– ) is an Italian composer, conductor, ethnomusicologis and theatre director. In his theatrical version of ‘La Gatta Cenerentola’ (‘The Cinderella Cat’, 1976) he set Giambattista Basile’s 17th-century fairy tale to music, incorporating popular songs of Basile’s own time with original variations on the modern folk repertoire of the Naples area. In 1994 he published Fiabe campane: i novantanove racconti delle dieci notti (Fairy Tales from Campania: The Ninety‐Nine Tales of the Ten Nights), the result of 20 years spent tape‐recording oral storytellers in the Campania region of Italy.
