King Stag, written by Carlo Gozzi, the great eighteenth century Italian playwright, employs all the characters and devices of the classical commedia dell'arte.
We meet Pantaloon, the silly old man, the Harlequin clowns, and young lovers. A fantastic story takes us to the Magic Kingdom of Serendip, where we encounter "black magic, blue magic. every kind of magic", as humans turn into stags, parrots, bears, and even into each other.
