In an Italian premiere, Cinzia Tedesco and Angelo Maggi present at the Auditorium Parco della Musica Ennio Morricone the show "The Voices of Bob Dylan," a journey between celebrated songs, which Tedesco interprets with her jazz voice, theatrical moments and live dubbing in which Angelo Maggi voices a Dylan who, on video, tells his story without filters or hypocrisies, and actors of the caliber of Denzel Washington, who in the film "Hurricane" plays Rubin Carter, a black boxer unjustly convicted of murder, to whom Dylan dedicates one of his most intense protest songs.

An engaging performance, conceived by the two protagonists, that was created to pay tribute to a unique and eclectic artist, a voice that championed human rights and sang one of the world's most famous "no to war," a thoughtful and intense poetic and literary voice so important that it won a Nobel Prize, a voice that sings of the plight of the poor and marginalized, an eclectic and evocative artist who could also amaze with the "voice" of the intense colors of his paintings exhibited today all over the world.

A show with songs that are memorable and, even today, of current significance, such as "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Blowing in Wind," melodies beloved by audiences and that find an original and exciting dimension in Tedesco's voice, with arrangements by Stefano Sabatini on piano and with Luca Pirozzi on double bass, Roberto Guarino on guitar and Pietro Jodice on drums. Cinzia Tedesco and Angelo Maggi bring their voices to the stage, which become "The Voices of Bob Dylan," and they do so with intense originality, giving the audience a Dylan sung and told within a new show that was created to surprise and make people talk about themselves.
