Event Details

In the countrysides of Southern Italy, the Tarantella is much more than a purification dance – it is part of an entire medical and spiritual philosophy known as Tarantism.  The musicians become healers charged with the task of finding just the right rhythm that will make the tarantata (bite victim) get up and dance away the venom in her veins.  In this performance, the Vesuvius Ensemble will show the incredible amount of variety and passion which infused this dance over the centuries.

Special Guests;

Romina Di Gasbarro
