In addition to the Roberto Bolle & Friends dates in New York and Shanghai, a new group of friends will join him for his Italian leg of the tour.
Roberto Bolle & Friends from the American Ballet Theatre will be at the Politeama Rossetti in Trieste on 19 July; at Rome's Caracalla Baths on 21-22 July; at the Teatro Carlo Felice in Genoa on 24 July, and finishing at Sicily's glorious Teatro Antico in Taormina on 26 July.
The programme will reflect ABT's repertoire and among others will feature one of the company's senior principal dancers Julie Kent, and Daniil Simkin, one its youngest, who was promoted to principal just last year.
