Excerpts from the full-length ballet Napoli

Choreography by August Bournonville | Staged by Henning Albrechtsen
Music by Edvard Helsted and Holger Simon Paulli
Featuring: Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre Company Dancers

Napoli, or The Fisherman and His Bride, was choreographed in 1842 by August Bournonville for Denmark's Royal Ballet. Set in Italy, the ballet tells the story of Gennaro, a poor fisherman, and his beloved Teresina, as they overcome forces that attempt to thwart their love. The Pas de Six and Tarantella are from the lively and exuberant wedding celebration in Act 3. Napoli is a beautiful example of Bournonville's signature style, which includes fast, technically difficult footwork and jumps that are executed with ease and joy.

Three - 4,6,8

Choreography by Helen Pickett
Music by Philip Glass: Einstein on the Beach: Knee Play 1
Featuring: Corey Bourbonniere, Josiah Kauffman, Kurtis Sprowls

Helen Pickett, an award-winning American choreographer for dance on stage and film, has created a world premiere for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Three-4,6,8 makes its debut as a highly energized, architectural and kinetic contemporary dance for three men. It is rich and complex, while embracing camaraderie, competition and community.
