Duets, villanelles and instrumental music by

O mia bella Napoli, anyone who has seen you just once can never forget you and even people who have never seen you know your songs because your passionate joy for singing has, so it seems, always been with you. The French baroque ensemble LES PALADINS stroll through your streets, which are the stage for the comedy that is life in all its glamour and misery. They capture the sound and air of your essential being in a theatrically musical spectacle that imaginatively combines music, dance and acrobatics. It contains four centuries of music: the villanelles and the tarantellas from the Renaissance as well as the Spanish steps resounding from your cobblestones, the artful baroque arias and of course the 19th century earworms from »Santa Lucia« to »Funiculi funicula«.
