John’s Last Dream by Roberta Calandra

The heart of aristocratic Rome, beside the famous ‘Spanish Steps’, at the tortured deathbed of the English Romantic poet John Keats. A place that has inspired a new mini-play by Italian artist Roberta Calandra.

Roberta’s play interprets the relationships and final poetic vision of our most Romantic of ex-patriots and features key figures from the poet’s life: the women he loved, the younger poets whom he inspired, and the struggling 19th century Doctor who was unable to save him from illness.
