Concerto Teatro Uomo is a live album by Italian Jazz fusion band Area released in 1996 and recorded in 1977 in Milan, while the band was supporting their fifth album Maledetti (Maudits). The album was criticized for its sound quality (it was not professionally recorded, unlike their 1975 live album Are(A)zione) and for some packaging errors (the CD split between "Evaporazione" and "Arbeit Macht Frei" is wrong, there is an uncredited performance of "Diforisma Urbano" on "Il Massacro Di Brandeburgo Numero Tre in Sol Maggiore", "Improvvisazione" is actually "Are(a)zione" and the cover credits Paul Lytton and Steve Lacy, actually absent in the recording [1]), but was also praised for its musical content (including extended improvisations) and for Demetrio Stratos' useful information about the tracks during banter between songs. In 2002 this album was repackaged with another posthumous live album Parigi-Lisbona in the boxset Live Concerts Box.
