Roberto Bolle and the American Ballet Theatre
The appointment with the ballet word is for November 24, 2014, when the American Ballet Theatre will be with the great dancer Roberto Bolle, a real star in the world of dance.
Performing in Florence is a source of enthusiasm for the Italian dancer, perhaps remembering the successes of his last appearance in the city in 2009.
This time, the show will not be in the lush garden of Boboli but the most modern and aseptic Mandela Forum.
Roberto Bolle is considered one of the most popular dancers in the world and how it could be for someone so simple and nice.
On the stage of the Mandela Forum there will be other dancers, all of proven ability. We recall a few names: Isabella Boylston, Skylar Brandt, Julie Kent, Hee Seo, Adaniil Simkin, Cory Stearns and James Whitesite.
The show involves these stars of the American Ballet Theatre Company, is a way to further spread the dance, trying to engage young people, bring them into this world with simplicity and ease. This is a show that wants to understand how dance is for everyone, not a closed world for the less privileged.
The great Italian dancer has always stressed that in Italy the ballet has always been considered as a filler, never a priority, while the choreographers every time show that it is a fantasy world without limits; everyone is waiting for the display of bubbles that will present a new pas de deux just created, and other interpretations, including the use of digital projection and infrared; Ballet is therefore also research.
As often happens, Italy is like a stepmother, while abroad is that you get the big hits. In other countries, the ballet is considered important, we have the satisfaction of having Roberto Bolle ambassador of beauty and of Italian culture.
