New Napoli to be presented at Festival
Posted 16 October 2003 - 08:51 AM
Napoli - the New City
Tim Rushtons new interpretation of Bournonvilles Napoli is performed at the
festival in 2005
Expect the unexpected when Tim Rushton takes a brave leap by renewing a
160-year-old national legacy.
Napoli - the New City is set in an urban discotheque environment complete
with trendy young people and pulsing colourful lights. Having stripped away
several of the characters from the 160 year old, world renowned August
Bournonville-ballet Napoli, Rushton is down to essentials of passion,
temptations and conquering love when he tells the story of the young couple
Teresina and Gennaro.
True to the original narrative line, Teresina is captured by seaspirit
Golfo, who emprisons her in a mysterious underworld of luscious female
creatures. In the end, however, she breaks the spell of temptation and
returns to Gennaro where the traditional 3rd. act is turned into a complete
party zone anno 2003.
Napoli - the New City has all the passions and broad appeal of the original
Napoli, but employs a lively contemporary movement and visual vocabulary,
including close-up videofilms by filmmaker Ulrik Wivel.
Napoli - the New City had it's world premiere at the Royal Danish Theatre in
the summer 2003 - guest performed by the New Danish Dance Theatre.
NDDT also performs the revival on June 5th 2005 at the 3rd Bournonville
The Royal Danish Ballet
