Teatro Miela

Since 1992, Teatro Miela in Trieste, Italy, celebrate Satie's birthday on May 17th every year. Musicians, dancers, artists, poets and others contribute on an ideal basis. This kind of Satie festival is unique and an opportunity for other Satie fans and arrangers worldwide to establish important contacts.

In 2001 the responsible for this event, Rosella Pisciotta, kindly sent me an invitation to participate and to inform the audience about this site and the new Robert Caby piano recording.

This year the birthday party started already the evening before with old quality films like Jean Cocteau's Le sand d'un poète (1932) and Man Ray's Les mystères du château de dé (1929), a piano performance by Aleksander Rojc and the starting of the complete performance of Vexations, this year performed by a Flash application on a webpage (see the link below).

Here are some pictures from the 2001 birthday party:
