"T'Ammore" & "Belcanto" Coming to NYC
Mon, 09 Sep 2013 15:59:56
ArtsLab Onstage (ArtsLabOnstageNYC.com) will present T'Ammore, which is "The Spirit of Naples," and Belcanto, which is part of the Luciano Pavarotti Heritage at New York City Center (131 W. 55th Street).
T'Ammore will play October 16 and 18 and Belcanto, produced in collaboration with the "Luciano Pavarotti Foundation" will play October 17 and 19. All shows are at 8PM.
T'Ammore pays homage to the classic Neapolitan song and the most popular dance and myth from the south of Italy: The Tarantella. The story is told through music and dance by 22 performing artists and explores this myth, which starts when a tarantula spider bites the feet of young ladies who are then compelled to dance the tarantella for hours to free themselves of the spider's venom. A story of fantasy, love, and redemption, T'Ammore shows that the power of music and dance can ultimately help us reconnect to our roots.
Originally produced and staged at the Menotti Theater in Spoleto, Italy, T'Ammore has also performed at the Arena Flegrea of Naples, at the D'Annunzio Theater in Latina and the Sistina Theater in Rome.
T'Ammore will enlighten audiences into the inestimable value of the cultural heritage of Naples,through the expression of traditional music and a dance.
Tickets for T'Ammore range from $25-$85 and tickets for Belcanto, the Luciano Pavarotti Heritage range from $25 - $110 and are available through City Tix (212) 581-1212 / 1-877-581-1212 (outside metropolitan area NY, NJ, CT) or online ArtsLabOnstageNYC.com.
