Over the years, Santoro exhibited his work in many places, including Gallery of the Torcello, Venice, Quadrennial of Milan, the Royal Palace of Naples.

Laurel and Hardy were a comedy double act during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of English thin man Stan Laurel  and American fat man Oliver Hardy. They became well known during the late 1920s through the mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy, with Laurel playing the clumsy and childlike friend of the pompous bully Hardy. The duo's signature tune is known variously as The Cuckoo Song, Ku-Ku, or The Dance of the Cuckoos.

These fantastic one-woman shows celebrate strong women in two completely different ways. Cathay: Black women in the 1860’s American South bore enough of a burden just living within strictly defined female social roles, let alone choosing their own career paths. Cathay Williams, the daughter of a slave woman from Independence, Missouri, knows she's meant for something different. When the United States Army liberates her town, she realizes her destiny is to be a soldier. She's going to enlist in the United States regular army as a Buffalo Soldier, and nothing's going to stop her from making her own road by whatever means necessary. By Dani Martineck Directed by Ria DiLullo Performed by Courtney McClellan Venus & Adonis: What happens when the Goddess of Love is rejected? In this one-woman show, we present the story of Venus and Adonis, using only Shakespeare’s text from his little-known poem about what happens when Venus, the goddess of love, faces rejection. In telling her story of unrequited love and inevitable loss, we see a powerful goddess, reduced to a vulnerable, insecure, and heart-broken woman. A story anyone who has loved and lost can relate to.

Set in the city of Thebes in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other a usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But when the sister of the slain young brothers protests the edict, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost. Calling on the cultural landscape of African-American traditions, while adhering to the Greek tragic form; this fresh reimagining of the classic story will captivate, stun and inspire audiences from all backgrounds. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.
