Viselli Brothers wanted to expose
their Italian heritage through video and shows. Their production
company was named “The Happy Gang”.
Viselli Brothers have documented their heritage through productions,
such as “La Ballata Ciociaria”, a production that
honours the old traditions of Rome, or Ciociaria; “The
Man and the Bird”, “The Twins”, “Roma
Nostra”, “Er carelliere a Vino”, “Smokey
and Me”. These were all created in their modest garage/studio.
“La Passatella” is a musical tragic comedy in three acts. La Passatella
is a reflection of life in Southern Italy and Rome. Armando Viselli originally
wrote “La Passatella” in the 1970s, when it was broadcasted on public
radio in Detroit, on its Italian Musical Program. The opera sat on the shelf
1998. The comedy was performed at the Caboto Club in 1999.
The comedy, “La classe dei Cervelloni (The classroom of the Smart People)”, was
produced in 2000, by Armando and Carmine, for the 75th Anniversary of the Caboto
“I seguaci Di Confucio” is also another musical comedy, played at
Club in 2001.
