Roberto Bolle puts on stunning dance show at Expo 2020 Dubai – Lifestyle – Agenzia ANSA

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 3 – Italian superstar Roberto Bolle took to Dubai Millennium Amphitheatre (DMA), Expo 2020 Dubai, on Wednesday evening with his troupe of acclaimed dancers for a breathtaking gala ballet performance.
    The Roberto Bolle and Friends’ show, staged in collaboration with the Italy Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, featured a repertoire of much-loved classics as well as contemporary performances curated by Bolle himself.
    Opening with an extraordinary pas de deux between Bolle and a laser beam in choreographer Massimiliano Volpini’s Waves, the show continued with stunning performances from Biance Teixeira and Osiel Gouno in choreographer Marius Petipa’s Le Corsaire; followed by a magical duet from Maria Eichwald and Bolle in choreographer Roland Petit’s Thaïs, among the 10 performances.
    The gala show demonstrated the dancers’ incredible energy, breadth of balletic range and technical skills – ranging from a comic solo dance by Dinu Tamazlacuru in choreographer Ben Van Cauwenbergh’s Les Bourgeois to a daring performance by Bolle, with violinist Alexandra Quarta playing Von Biber’s Passacaglia theme, in Volpini’s Dorian Gray.
    The show drew to a close with a standing ovation.
    The first Italian dancer to be invited to perform at the Metropolitan Opera, Bolle trained in Milan’s La Scala Theatre Ballet School, before quickly moving onto starring roles in productions by prestigious companies, including London’s The Royal Ballet, Russia’s Mariinsky Ballet and Paris Opera Ballet.
