The small group in these shots is an Italian theater class taking turns declaiming. One after another they stood in the orchestra reciting from memory passages from Euripides, Dante, and Homer.

I was very much hoping to be called upon. My speech was mentally sorted and ready for Broadway:

Just sit — right back [gestures with hand]
And you'll hear a tail —
A tale of a... fateful... trip
That started from... [gestures with hand]
This... tropic port
Aboard this [gestures with fingers] tiny ship.

The mate was a... mighty... sailing man
The skipper brave, and sure
Five [holds up hand with five fingers] passengers set sail that day
— for a three [holds up three fingers]... hour tour
[gestures to audience to repeat]
[audience]: A three... hour tour.
