In The merry wives of Williams, three widows meet each other on the anniversary of their beloved’s death, in an encounter made of music and words. Contemporary Music and words challenge the words of 1500 entangling and intertwining together in a duel of hearts. A game, a surreal trick where three musicians pretend to be actresses and enjoy themselves performing Shakespeare in the original language.
