NAPOLI A MODO MIO
“NAPOLI A MODO MIO” (Naples My Way)
Classic Neapolitan music. Famous (and not so famous) ballads, up-tempo and comedic songs of Naples. Beautiful readings from “Napoli sul mare luccica” a book by Antonella Cilento, are intertwined throughout the evening.
A special moment in the show is a tribute to one of the last composers of Neapolitan Song, Fausto Cigliano with his song, Duorme, written in the ‘60s with Ennio Morricone.
