These performances will take place at the Keller Auditorium in Portland, Oregon. 

Danish choreographer August Bournonville’s Napoli is known for its vibrant depiction of Neapolitan street life. This iconic and beloved Danish ballet tells the story of Teresina, a simple Italian girl, who falls in love with Gennaro, a poor fisherman. Her mother, hoping for a wealthy suitor, is against the match. But the young couple cannot be kept apart, even when Teresina is lured away by sea nymphs to a beautiful underwater world ruled by an evil sea spirit. It is the couple’s true love for each other that breaks the spell and saves them. Powered by Bournonville’s signature mix of grace and technically thrilling footwork, it’s easy to see why this uplifting and beautiful ballet has become a symbol of the Royal Danish Ballet.
