Created in 2008, after 8 years of enormous successes gathered all over Italy and abroad, the by-then famous “Roberto Bolle and Friends” Gala began looking for locations that would normally be considered highly unusual for the typical ballet requirements. Locations, at this point, had become as important and peculiar to the “Roberto Bolle and Friends” appointment as the repertoire performed on stage. The gala transpired in many places, including but not limited to: The Coliseum in Rome, Duomo Square in Milan, Plebiscito Square in Naples and San Marco square in Venice. Since then, this dance show has become a flagship event touring the most prestigious venues in the world, with performances that are drawn from classical, modern and contemporary repertoires.
Renowned as the new Nureyev, international star dancer Roberto Bolle will be performing with an international cast of star dancers at this year’s Baalbeck Festival. This not-to-be-missed international event will celebrate the magnificent restoration works undertaken by the Italian government on the Bacchus temple interior and on the six columns of the temple of Jupiter classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
This dance performance is organized in partnership with the Italian Embassy and the Italian Cultural Center.
