Moni Ovadia

Actor, director, musician Moni Ovadia joins Only Stage management’s roster

Actor, director, musician and political activist, Moni Ovadia is considered one of the most prestigious and popular men of culture and artists on the Italian scene. He found his most congenial form of expression in a form of "musical theatre" inspired by Yiddish culture - which he contributed to making known and of which he gave a contemporary reading - dramaturgically centred on the figure of the "musician/actor".

Trained in the early Seventies as a singer and folk musician under the guidance of the ethnomusicologist Roberto Leydi, over time he has produced numerous records of music inspired by Klezmer, Middle Eastern and Greek music.

In 1993 he came to the attention of the general public with “Oylem Goylem”, a musical theatre creation in the form of cabaret, acclaimed by critics and the public and continued over the years by offering shows that express his vision of the world and his ideals.
