“Even fleas can cough” (Anche le pulci hanno la tosse) is in Italian proverb used to characterise those people who know little but have the nerve to express their opinion, in an imperceptible voice though, like fleas (“Beggars can be choosers” is a similar English proverb). Our theatre adaptation of Tomizza’s book tells the story of Stellina, an ambitious flea that loves bel canto, loves going to the town opera house every evening and imitating the poses and whims of famous opera divas. However, a spider, a mosquito and a centipede will make her reason. The question is, can a flea sing opera?
