Info: Melbourne City Ballet will open our annual program for 2016 with the seaside Bournonville ballet “Napoli” at the Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre from 11-13 March 2016. Set in the italian seaside town of Naples, “Napoli” portrays the story of young lovers Teresina and Gennaro who, only moments after becoming engaged, are torn a part when the sea claims Teresina. Young Gennaro must embark on a journey to save his fiance before it is too late. Featuring new choreography by Artistic Director Michael Pappalardo, this challenging adaption pays homage to August Bournonville’s challenging footwork over two hours.
