For its fourth visit to the Palais Garnier, the Royal Danish Ballet presents a reinterpretation of a great ballet from its repertoire, whose tradition never ceases to live and evolve.

August Bournonville, the Danish dancer, ballet master and choreographer of French origin, lent his identity to the Royal Danish Ballet and gave it a style in keeping with the rigour and grace of the French School. First presented in Copenhagen in 1842, “Napoli” established itself as the choreographer’s masterpiece and became emblematic of Danish romanticism, with a first act anchored in reality and a second act inviting us into the supernatural world.

Performed ever since by the company since its creation, Napoli was re-worked in 2009 by Nikolaj Hübbe, its current artistic director. With the complicity of Sorella Englund, he moved the adventures of Teresina and her fiancé, the fisherman Gennaro, to the streets of 1950s Naples and completely expunged all hint of divine intervention.
