About This Show

One of the oldest and most respected ballet companies in the world returns to the Kennedy Center for the first time since 2004. The Royal Danish Ballet, now under the artistic direction of Nikolaj Hübbe, is trained in the traditional style August Bournonville developed from the classical French school where he studied.

The company’s engagement includes Nikolaj Hübbe’s new production of Bournonville’s Napoli. This Italian adventure and love story set in 1950s Naples–the stomping grounds of Fellini’s camera crews and Mafioso types–brings a modern twist to a fairytale affair.
