The family of the Italian ambassador in Tehran missed seeing the Italian play "Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea" because of the hordes of people at the entrance of the hall here on Monday.

An entry to the International Section of the 30th Fajr International Theater Festival, the play by Pino Di Buduo (Teatro Potlach) went on stage at the Qashqai Hall of Tehran's City Theater Complex.
The 150-seat hall was not spacious enough to host all the enthusiastic fans swarming around the door with their tickets in hands, the Persian service of ILNA reported on Wednesday.
However, the wife of the ambassador and her Italian companions were guided to the cafe instead for a cup of coffee. They were later offered the opportunity to see another Italian play "Periodonero" by Eva Geatti and Nicola Toffolini at the main hall of the complex.
An adaptation of the original text by Jules Verne, "Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea" stems from the idea of combining 30 years of experience working on the actor's role and the use of the latest state-of-the-art digital and lighting technologies.
The actors are literally "immersed" in a magical, dream-like setting created by digital projections and the latest-generation LED lights. The illusion created takes spectators along with the actors in discovering the sea depths and Captain Nemo's mysterious Nautilus.
