Isabella Rossellini presented a theatrical tribute to one of the most celebrated actresses of the 20th century. Marking the centennial of Ingrid Bergman’s birth on August 29, 1915, Rossellini was joined in performance by actor Jeremy Irons to uncover the woman and artist behind the screen legend. The staging incorporated Rossellini’s own memories of her mother, plus interviews, unpublished letters, personal videos, and previously unreleased video clips and images from private Bergman’s archives.
Rossellini and Irons performed live on stage portraying Bergman and various characters from her colorful life, guiding the audience through her experiences while original film footage and images from her private archive were projected on a screen. Woven throughout the performance were testimonies and stories from friends and artists she knew and worked with, such as Roberto Rossellini, Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Capa, Ernest Hemingway, and many others.
