4.8 out of 5 stars

on 20 July 2014
A ballet of 1842 with the company displaying the Bournonville style. At his time, travel ballets were popular as were supernatural scenes.Bournonville could bring on a corps of ethereal women, staging dances of otherworldly glamour. But Napoli is famous for the celebratory dances of the last act taken from his memory of folk dances seen on a trip to Naples including the tarantella. The dances are fantastic and the DVD is very enjoyable even after viewing many more times. This is not a DVd that one bores of viewing.

Bournonville ( appointed choreographer to Royal Danish Ballet in early 1800 ) is better known for the 2nd version of La Sylphide(1836),the first being Filippo Taglioni's (1832) ideally revived by Lacotte as a tribute to the legendary Maria Taglioni, in 1971.Napoli shows Bournonville's peculiar choreography mostly on demi-pointe so strikingly light and elegant, especially in the "pas de six" where the dancers show their danish technique.Quite enjoyable.
