«Roberto Bolle and Friends» for the first time at the Greek Theater of Syracuse


By John

Roberto Bolle for the first time at the Greek Theater of Syracuse. The most famous Italian dancer, among the most acclaimed ever, will be on Sunday 14 July at 8.30 pm in the ancient auditorium with his Gala «Roberto Bolle and Friends», produced by Artedanza, with which the Étoile conquered the whole world. A special event in collaboration with the Inda Foundationincluded in the program of the 59th Season of classical performances.

A show that is now a cult that fascinates thousands of people every year: always new in the pieces offered but always the same in terms of excellence and charm.
Bolle is currently in London, guest of the Royal Ballet, to prepare new choreographies. And in the meantime she is preparing for «Viva la dance», the big event on April 29th: the new prime time television show on Rai1, for the International Dance Day. An event that was announced by Bolle himself at the last Sanremo Festival, where the étoile performed in Ravel's «Bolero» choreography by Maurice Béjart with the dancers of the Béjart Ballet Lausanne on the final evening of the Festival.

For the Gala at the Greek theater in Syracuse it will be Roberto Bolle himself, 49 years old next Tuesday, who will choose the cast and programme: accompanied by the «Friends» from all over the world, he creates a splendid alternation of pas de deux and solos from the classical and contemporary who enchants and conquers on every occasion, and takes his dance everywhere. His travels around the world lead him to meet new artists, young people of international standing, who would not be able to perform in Italy. Bolle also manages to be a talent discoverer. He has always tried to enhance dance, not only through his shows, but also with events on television broadcasters: and he fights to improve the situation of dance in Italy, asking for an increase in investments, and in future young Italian dancers, often forced to go abroad to find the ideal conditions to express themselves.
