The Show

The Sorrento Tarantella

The Sorrento’s magical atmosphere of the 1950’s is back into Teatro Tasso thanks to Sorrento Amarcord, a theatrical piece that shows how, in the old days, the inhabitants of Sorrento, after sunset, took off their work clothes to become singers, musicians and dancers!

Traditions

This experience allows tourists the opportunity to live moments of carefree joy and to feel a renewed desire to start over.

The show is the result of the hard work to bring back to the life the most enchanting songs of the Neapolitan folklore, the ancient and original choreographies of Sorrento’s Tarantella, the bright colored costumes of the era, the rhythm and sounds of the handmade musical instruments.

The Tarantella

A devoted and meticulous research has been done by the Sorrento Amarcord’s artists to offer to the public, in its AUTHENTIC form, one of the most ancient tarantellas: the Tarantella Sorrento – the real jewel of the show.

Be part of the show

In Sorrento Amarcord the viewer becomes a vital part of the show, carried away by Pazzariello’s irony, the Pulcinella’s euphoria, the gentle invitations of the graceful dancers with their Scarrafone, the many characters that fill the scene giving emotions with an authentic flavor of a Sorrento that never ceases to amaze.

The Show

Upon arrival at the theater, guests will be welcomed by costumed artists for a welcome drink on the terrace or in the foyer (prosecco or soft drink).

Afterwards, if desired, they will be accompanied on a visit to the photographic exhibition on the TARANTELLA SORRENTINA from the 1950s to the present day.

In the hall there is a moment of curtain show with live music (guitar & mandolin).

The show is a cheerful and engaging succession of tarantella dances, Neapolitan macchiette (Pulcinella, Lilì Kangy), famous songs (‘O Sole mio, Torna a Surriento, Funiculì Funiculà), in a constant involvement of the public with interventions in the audience of the artists and public participation in choreography and stage games.

The highlight of the show is the creation of a large orchestra with the involvement of over 40 spectators with popular music instruments (triccabballacche, putipù, scetavaisse, caccavella), the orchestra is animated and directed artfully by our Pazzariello in a series of hilarious musical gags.

Finally, the show ends with the release of the public and the artists in the foyer for a grand surprise finale.

It’s possible to organize private performance and stage of Tarantella on request.

Sorrento Amarcord is love, passion, irony, a sort of “joie de vivre” and an occasion to cheerfully and longingly look to the unforgettable memories of a beautiful past.

It’s possible to organize extra shows with a minimum guaranted of 100 guests.
