Notes and Editorial Reviews

Napoli, a conernstone of the Royal Danish Ballet, was created in 1842 by choreographer and ballet master, August Bournonville. | This timeless tale is set in Naples and focues on Gennaro, a young fisherman, on his quest to rescue Teresina, his beloved, who has supposedly drowned at sea. | For this production, the Company has chosen to set the scene in the 1950s, taking inspriation from Federico Fellini's early films. | Maja Ravn has created elaborate sets and constumes and Nikolaj Hübbe and Sorella Englund bring striking new choreography to Bournonville's classic routines. | An entirely new musical score has been created for Act II just for this production! | Leading this cast is Alban Lendorf as Gennaro and Alexandra Lo Sardo as Read more Teresina. | Graham Bond conducts this fabulous ballet, recorded live in 2014 at the Royal Danish Ballet, Copenhagen.
